Bus operator Stagecoach is offering a free ride for Everton fans to their first home match of the season this Saturday.
The company has teamed up with Everton FC to promote its new-look 919 direct route from Liverpool city centre to Goodison Park which will operate on matchdays from this weekend.
And on Saturday, August 18, Stagecoach says Blues season ticket holders can travel for free to their first home game of the season against Southampton by showing the driver their season ticket card.
The 919 service will operate from St John’s Lane. The first bus departs two hours before kick-off and then at frequent intervals to ensure arrival at the ground ahead of the start of the match.
After the game, buses will be departing from Walton Lane, opposite the Everton club shop, 10 minutes after the final whistle. This season, Stagecoach has increased the number of buses operating on the route.
Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire is one of four regional partners for Everton Football Club for the 2018/19 season. Managing director Rob Jones, said: “This is about giving fans the chance to leave the car at home and get to the match without the added stress that comes with driving to the game.”
