Rugby enthusiasts attending Saturday's Super 14 Rugby match will be transported from park-and-ride facilities in the city to the match venue.

City of Johannesburg spokesperson, Nthatisi Modingoane, has urged all rugby fans  to  make  use of this service. "This is the safest, quickest and most convenient  way  to get to the match and back to your vehicle. Through this you  can  avoid the huge traffic jams usually associated with big matches," he says.

The  City  of  Johannesburg's Transportation Department will provide Park & Ride  services  for the Super 14 Rugby Match that will be held on, Saturday 15th March 2008 at the Johannesburg Stadium, starting at 17h00.

Secure   parking  facilities  will  be  available  at  two  venues,  namely Bezuidenhout  Valley  Park  (Marcia  Street)  & the Wits West Campus (Enoch Sontonga  Street),  at a cost of R20. Transport to the Johannesburg Stadium from  both Park & Ride facilities will be free of charge. The Park and Ride facilities will start operating from 13h00.

The buses and mini-buses serving the Park & Ride facilities will operate as a  shuttle  service.  They  will  be available to transport people every 30 minutes. A Public Transport schedule will also be provided.

Security will be provided at all the Park and Ride sites.

So,  avoid  getting  stuck  in  traffic  and be wise, use the Park and Ride facilities.
