Travel advice for rugby fans heading to Autumn Tests at Murrayfield

Posted: 10th November 2017

The ScotRail Alliance is adding carriages to as many trains as possible for rugby fans travelling to Scotland’s Autumn Test home games at the BT Murrayfield Stadium.

Scotland play Samoa on Saturday 11 November (KO 2.30pm), New Zealand on Saturday 18 November (KO 5.15pm), and Australia on Saturday 25 November (KO 2.30pm).

Trains to and from Edinburgh will be extremely busy. Supporters heading to the games are advised to allow additional time for travel, as queuing systems will be in place at Haymarket after the final whistle.

Extra staff will be on hand to assist customers and, as with most large events, alcohol bans will be in force.

ScotRail Alliance Head of Customer Experience, Graham Heald said: “The Autumn Tests are a big draw. We’ve done everything we can to boost the number of seats on key routes into the capital and will be using all available trains on match days.

“Please allow extra time for travel, and buy your ticket in advance to save you time and minimise the need to queue.

“If you’re travelling with children, our Kids Go Free tickets are the perfect fit – with up to two children, aged 5-15, traveling free with each adult.”
