Customers are encouraged to plan their trip in advance and allow additional travel time as the services will be busier than usual throughout the day.

Fans are being asked to consider traveling directly to Edinburgh Waverley after the final whistle to reduce their need to queue.

Border Telegraph:

Edinburgh Trams operate a fast and frequent service between the stadium entrance and St Andrew Square tram stop – a short walk from Edinburgh Waverley.

Edinburgh City Center can also be reached from BT Murrayfield by a number of Lothian Bus services (1, 3, 12, 22, 25, 26, 30, 31 or 33).

Customers traveling by rail are also encouraged to purchase their return tickets for travel through the mTicket system on the ScotRail app, either from their home or on the way to the station where it will be immediately available on their mobile device.
