Free and frequent Adelaide Oval Footy Express services will be running from Saturday, 29 March 2014 for all Port and Crows games.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) Chief Executive, Rod Hook said that the new Adelaide Oval Footy Express train, tram and bus services will operate to a high frequency timetable and will set-down within a short walk of the redeveloped Adelaide Oval.
“By simply showing your Adelaide Oval footy ticket when boarding an Adelaide Metro Adelaide Oval Footy Express or general train, tram or bus service you are eligible for free travel to and from the game.”
An Adelaide Oval Footy Express bus interchange will be established on King William Road between North Terrace and Victoria Drive. Footy Express buses will provide frequent limited stop bus routes at a 5-20 minutes frequency 1-2 hours prior to the game, and the buses will depart 30 minutes after the final siren.
Adelaide Oval Footy Express tram services will operate at a 5-10 minute frequency at all stops and train services at a 15-30 minute frequency at limited stops 2-2.5 hours prior to the game and 1-1.5 hours after the game.
