Free transport for Origin game

ORIGIN fans can enjoy free train and bus transport to tonight's decider at Lang Park.

Minister for Transport and Main Roads Scott Emerson said fans could use their game tickets to access free travel from midday today on Brisbane Transport buses and Queensland Rail trains.

"The maroon TransLink website will help all Queenslanders - and a few NSW fans - to plan their free travel to Suncorp Stadium," Mr Emerson said.

"Public transport is the quickest way to travel to big games at Suncorp Stadium, particularly in the early evening when many people are also coming home from work."

Event shuttle buses will operate from 6pm, departing Carindale bus interchange and Chermside bus interchange approximately every 15 minutes, every 10 minutes from Eight Mile Plains Busway Station and approximately every 30 minutes from Waterworks Road in The Gap.

Shuttle buses will also operate from 6pm departing every five minutes from Adelaide Street stop 45 (opposite City Hall) and Makerston Street outside police headquarters.

Return shuttle buses will run for an hour after the final siren sounds to all destinations.

Additional trains will run to the game and 18 additional trains will be added for the ride home on the Caboolture, Ipswich, Ferny Grove, Shorncliffe, Cleveland, Beenleigh and Gold Coast lines.
