Doncaster Stadium: Bus Transport

Doncaster Stadium:  Bus Transport

The Keepmoat Stadium: Fans` questions answered.

A Question and Answer session was held at the Rovers` Return on 7 December, with upwards of 30 fans in attendance. The meeting was Chaired by Andy Liney, and questions posed both from the floor and submitted in advance were fielded by Ian Spowart, Chairman of the Stadium Management Company, Dave Hazard, Stadium Project Manager for DMBC, and Dave Morris, Chief Executive of Doncaster Rovers.

The following is a summary of the answers given:

Bus transport

A park and ride will initially operate from the racecourse until the developments there are completed in 18 months to two years.

It will be free to park and £1 each way to use the shuttle bus. Normal concessionary fares will apply to this service.

Park and ride schemes will then operate from Green Lane (Scawthorpe) and Parrot`s Corner (Rossington Bridge).

For at least the next twelve moths, Belle Vue car park will remain open as a free car park. Users can walk from there, although consideration is being given to having the shuttle buses also pick up there.

New services (72 and 75) will run from bay C4 at the Interchange to the Keepmoat Stadium on a regular basis every day, including match days.

Bus frequency will increase dependent on anticipated attendance, starting at every 20 minutes, increasing to every 15 minutes above 5,000, and every ten minutes above 9,000.

These services will run right through Stadium Way (the road from the Post office sorting office on Potteric Carr Roar to Lakeside Boulevard), and there will be two stadium bus stops on Stadium Way.

These two services will run on New Year`s Day (the day of Rovers` first match at the new ground). Due to it being a bank holiday, the other normal bus services will not operate on this day.

Bus frequency after a match will be examined in light of experience to ensure bus travellers can be cleared from the area efficiently.

Fans will be encouraged to remain in the stadium complex using its facilities, having post match refreshments and looking at the many TV screens or enjoying specially laid on entertainment, to spread the time over which fans exit the area.
