Public Transport - Northern Beaches bus services for NRL semi-final? OK as we are the home Semi team for Saturday’s NRL Semi (against the Sharks) are the NRL confirming transport options for the Northern Beaches (Sydney/STA buses) as they did last year and in previous years? See article below. One of the major problems with Allianz/Moore Park is a good direct (fast) public transport option from the Northern Beaches as parking is a complete nightmare. You pay to park in a car park and then get stuck in that car park for an hour after the game!! ________________________________________ http://www.scgt.nsw.gov.au/latest-news/free-northern-beaches-bus-services-for-nrl-semi-final/ From last year .....
