Cricket fans will be able to travel to and from the Australia vs England game for FREE on Adelaide Metro. This will mark the beginning of Australia’s road to the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup.

Cricket fans heading to Adelaide Oval on Thursday to watch one of sport’s greatest rivalries will be able to travel to and from the game for FREE on Adelaide Metro services.

Australia will commence its road to next year’s ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup with the series opener of the three-game Dettol ODI tournament against England.

“White ball cricket is returning to Adelaide Oval for the first time without restrictions and we are expecting thousands to revel in the spectacle,” says Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Tom Koutsantonis.

“Matches between Australia and England are always a celebration of one of world cricket’s greatest rivalries, and South Australians should ensure they get along to take in all the action.”

Free travel applies to all regular bus, tram and train services to and from the city from 10:30am.

Additional services will also be running post-game to ensure an easy and convenient ride home for the expected crowd of around 25,000 spectators.

“We’re excited to see South Australia’s own Travis Head and Alex Carey take to the crease for Australia, while England are coming off their recent T20 World Cup triumph,” says Minister Koutsantonis.

“Services will operate for up to 45 minutes after the last ball, and we’ll also be operating extra bus, tram and train services. Just show your match ticket to the driver or customer service staff and enjoy the free ride.”

To access free travel, simply present your match ticket to the driver or customer service staff when using public transport.
