Arriva have added a new route from Melton Mowbray to their Leicester Tigers matchday bus services, starting with this Sunday’s match against Montpelleir in Europe’s Heineken Cup.
The new T6 service from Melton Mowbray will include stops at Asfordby, Thrussington, Rearsby, East Goscote, Syston and Thurmaston.
The new service joins four other full Arriva services on matchday and the T5 minibus service from Coalville.
All services are scheduled to drop off at Welford Road 30 minutes ahead of kick-off and depart 30 minutes after the final whistle. All timetables are adjusted for changes in kick-off times and the services operate on all matchdays, including Friday evenings, Saturday afternoon and Sundays.
Return fares on the T1, T2, T3, T4 and T6 services, wherever you join or drop-off, are £6 adults, £5 juniors and conessions. Pre-book at the Arriva Travel Shop at St Margaret's Bus Station by phoning 0116 242 3670 or email [email protected], or turn up and pay on the day.
Please note that places on the T5 service from Coalville can be booked only at the Tigers ticket office.
