does anybody know how frequent buses are from the town hall to the ground please? do they only start at 2pm (as per stated on website) or do they run earlier

I haven't checked, but I think it is a reasonable assumption that the buses run at the same intervals throughout the day.

The website Directions Page has a "click here" link to the bus timetable.

The buses to BM run regularly up to the evening, at least every 20 minutes and often more frequently.

X26 and X27 run every twenty minutes combined from Feethams and takes about 10 minutes.

The 12 runs every half hour from Feethams as well.

The 3/3A/3B runs every 10 minutes from Feethams and stops nearby round South Park

Arriva buses have a useful app that gives you real-time info and directions such as where the bus stops / stands are in town.

The bus company must be doing quite well out of BM, as there must have been a good 30 queuing for a bus back into town after the game and around another 5 or so waiting on the other side of the road.

I’m surprised the share price hasn’t rocketed what with the reported extra revenue from 35 customers.
