GLOUCESTER Rugby are now in a position to offer limited seats on coaches travelling to Ashton Gate for the final Guinness Premiership match of the season against Bristol.
Places have now become available due to a number of season ticket holders who have changed their travel plans for the game on Saturday, April 28. Gloucester have already booked out 43 coaches.
Coach travel will be charged at £11 for non season ticket holders and is free of charge for season ticket holders providing they can exchange either voucher 55 in the season ticket booklet or an £8.00 voucher.
The coaches will be departing from British Energy car park in Barnwood at 11am on the morning of the match. A shuttle service will be in operation to ferry supporters from the Kingsholm bus stop (outside Arjo's) to British Energy site because there is no parking available there on the day.
The service will start at 9.45 am and run every 15 minutes with the last shuttle leaving at 10.45am.
There will be a return service commencing at approximately 7pm, and will run for one hour after the first coach returns. The shuttle services will be free of charge to both non season ticket holders and season ticket holders.
Supporters are not required to book this service as buses running will be double deckers.
The coaches will drop supporters in the large car park at Ashton Gate and will also collect from this point after the match and will depart for the return journey at 6pm sharp.
Please be prompt for all departure times to avoid delaying other supporters.
For further coach information or to book please contact the ticket office on 0871 871 8781 option 2 or visit the Kingsholm office.
Tickets for the west county derby can still be purchased either online at www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk or by calling the ticket hotline on 0871 871 8781 option 2.
