Figure image
Arriva have added a new route from Melton Mowbray to their Leicester Tigers matchday bus services, starting at the home game against Montpellier in two weeks' time.

The new T6 service from Melton Mowbray will include stops at Asfordby, Thrussington, Rearsby, East Goscote, Syston and Thurmaston.

This will be in operation from our next home game, against French visitors Montpellier in the Heineken Cup on Sunday, December 8.

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 all 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.
