Ulster Rugby and Translink have teamed up

11 October 2017

Ulster Rugby provide a FREE Park and Ride service to all home match nights, including this week's match against the Wasps for the European Rugby Champions Cup. This service is kindly facilitated by Translink and provided at all home matches at Kingspan Stadium during the 2017-18 season. The free and frequent Park and Ride service is available from sites at Pirrie Park and Montgomery Road.

It starts 90 minutes before kick-off on match nights and ends 90 minutes after the final whistle.  A special Metro bus service is also provided by Translink to make the commute to Kingspan Stadium easier for those in and around the city centre.

The Metro service departs from the Europa Buscentre an hour before kick off on match nights. Passengers can purchase an Ulster Rugby Metro ticket from Translink drivers on the night. These cash-only tickets include return travel to Kingspan Stadium and are priced at just £3.50 for adults and £1.75 for children.  

Speaking about the partnership, Translink’s Tommy Sandford said:
“We are delighted to be working with Ulster Rugby to provide convenient transport for spectators giving them options to get to matches on time. The free Park and Ride services from both Pirrie Park and Montgomery Road offer great flexibility for fans ensuring they will arrive at matches relaxed and ready for all the action. Visit www.translink.co.uk/ulsterrugby/ for full details.” 

Speaking on behalf of Ulster Rugby Fiona Hampton, Head of Sales and Marketing said:
“It is great to have Translink on board providing transport for our fantastic supporters. We work closely with the local community in and around the stadium to ensure that our match-nights create a positive environment. The Park and Ride and Metro services work to make the commute to Kingspan Stadium easier and smoother allowing fans to focus on the game and enjoy all the additional entertainment offerings at Kingspan Stadium”.
