Bus Company Go North West have teamed-up with our very own Salford Red Devils as well as The Devils Supporters Trust to run buses to help fans get to and from games at the AJ Bell during the upcoming 2020 season.
The RD1 Buses will now be available from Salford Shopping Centre, Irlams o’th’ Height, Langworthy, and Eccles, terminating at the home of the Red Devils the AJ Bell Stadium.
The first game on the schedule will be the Trans-Atlantic match-up between the Toronto Wolfpack and the Devils on kicking off at 2pm on Saturday 8th Feb.
Kids in participating schools can even get FREE tickets to watch the game too. (Schools have until the 5:00pm on the 31st of January to reserve tickets).
John Roxburgh, Operations Manager at Go North West said:
“Salford Red Devils are giants of the Super League and are at the very heart of the community here in Salford.
“As Salford’s leading bus company, we’re proud to play our part in helping fans connect with their heroes, and we’re delighted to be supporting the club with this exciting new partnership.”
Salford Red Devils director Paul King said:
“We’re really pleased to be working with Go North West on this initiative.
“Our success last season captured the interest of the local community and it’s important that we feed that interest by ensuring they can attend fixtures throughout what is set to be a very exciting 2020 Betfred Super League campaign.
“The AJ Bell Stadium has become much more accessible than when it first became our home and these buses will provide another, efficient way for supporters to make their journeys.
“I would like to thank the supporters’ trust for their work on this initiative and look forward to it transporting supporters new and old to our home opener against Toronto Wolfpack.”
Pete Brady, The Chair of the Supporter's Trust said:
"We are delighted to work with Go North West for the 2020 Super League Season. The RD1 service has become an integral part of the match day experience for so many fans and some of those fans wouldn't be able to get to and from the stadium without it. We look forward to building our partnership with Go North West over the coming months, and if the demand is there, we can look to expand this service across the city."
