Public transport is the easiest way to get to and from Suncorp Stadium tomorrow night when the Brisbane Broncos kick off their National Rugby League (NRL) season against the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Extra buses will run before and after the game with extra trains after full-time to help patrons safely get to and from Brisbane's season-opener, which starts at 7.05pm local time.
Head of TransLink Sally Stannard said pre-purchased ticket holders could travel free on all Brisbane City Council buses and South East Queensland trains (excluding Airtrain) from four hours before the match until four hours after the final siren.
"I know footy fans are excited for the new NRL season to kick-off and we're focused on ensuring it's easy, cheap and safe to get to and from the game with public transport," Ms Stannard said.
"Patrons can leave the car at home and catch a shuttle bus from Chermside, Carindale, Eight Mile Plains/Garden City, The Gap or the Brisbane CBD (Ann St) to Suncorp Stadium or they can jump on a train to Milton station and walk to the venue.
"Customers are reminded the train network is still running to a Saturday timetable with additional services during peak periods due to the floods last week.
"There will be trains every 15 minutes running from Central and Roma Street stations to Milton station between 3pm and 6.30pm, with some more trains after 6.30pm as well."
Ms Stannard said public transport would be the best way to get to and from games all season as the Broncos look to return to finals football following recent lean seasons.
"There'll be extra trains, dedicated shuttle buses and free travel for pre-purchased ticket holders all season," she said.
"Footy fever is in full swing with the Super Rugby season now underway as well and we're looking forward to tackling your transport needs all year.
"The best way to stay on the ball is to plan your journey in advance on the TransLink website, download the MyTransLink app or call 13 12 30."
In line with the current health advice, customers are reminded face masks remain mandatory when travelling on public transport – including when waiting at stops and stations – and in taxis and rideshare vehicles unless they are under the age of 12 or are exempt.
Patrons who travel on CityCats and Brisbane River ferries are reminded those services remain suspended due to unsafe conditions and damage to terminals and vessels caused by the floods.
