Travel to the game this weekend on a free bus
Canterbury rugby fans will once again have the chance to take a free bus to the new AMI Stadium, this time to watch the clash between the Crusaders and the Blues on Saturday 19 May.

Environment Canterbury Passenger Services Manager David Stenhouse says the free bus system has worked well for the past games and rugby fans have appreciated the chance to park and ride, so they will run again for this game.

Anyone with a ticket to the game can travel free of charge on any service between 5pm and 11pm. Park and Ride facilities will be available at Northwood Supa Centa, Merivale Mall, the Palms, Eastgate Shopping Centre and the Hub Hornby.

“We are encouraging rugby goers to leave themselves plenty of time to get to the game and to check timetables if they are travelling by our normal network services.’’
The plan to offer free buses for ticket holders is jointly funded by Environment Canterbury, Christchurch City Council, VBase and the Stadium Trust. 

People can find details and departure times for the services from Northwood Supa Centa, the Hub Hornby , Palms Shopping Centre and Merivale Mall which go to the game, and for the service from Beresford Street in New Brighton via Eastgate Shopping Centre to the game.

Timetables and all details are on or you can phone Metroinfo on 366 8855.
