The NSW Premier, The Hon Barry O'Farrell and Minister for Transport, Hon Gladys Berejiklian along with Panthers Group, Executive General Manager Football proudly announce the immediate availability of special NRL Express trains to Penrith for this Friday night’s feature match, Panthers Vs Rabbitohs.
This initiative is a boon for fans of both clubs either working or living in the City and Eastern Suburbs areas; with the long Friday night commute in peak hour traffic to Penrith may well be a deterrent for fans who want to support their team.
Phil Gould said, “We’re absolutely delighted with the Premier O’Farrell’s and Minister Berejiklian notable support for this initiative, along with the NRL.”
Both NRL Penrith express trains will leave from Platform 12 at Central:
a. The first will leave Central at 5:42pm and arrive at Penrith at 6:39pm, stopping at Redfern (5:42pm), Strathfield (5:55pm), Parramatta (6:07pm), Blacktown (6:20pm) and then Penrith.
b. The second will leave Central at 6:09pm and arrive at Penrith at 6:58pm, stopping at Redfern (6:12pm), Strathfield (6:21pm), Parramatta (6:33pm), Blacktown (6:43pm) and then Penrith.
c. Two trains will also be waiting at Penrith Station after the game to transport customers back (on the same stopping pattern). These trains will depart at 10.07pm and 10.37pm stopping at Blacktown, Parramatta, Strathfield, Redfern & Central.
With Panthers now close to 13,000 members and South Sydney on the cusp of 30,000 members, this extraordinary gesture from the State Government will be well received by all.
