Quotes attributable to Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Tom Koutsantonis

With the best of our local footy and the return of the City-Bay Fun Run this Sunday, make the most of a free and convenient ride on public transport into the city.

We’re running additional services, including dedicated City to Bay and Adelaide Oval buses, to make it as easy as possible for everyone to arrive safely and get home again afterwards.

Plenty of free public transport will be ready to go after both events, so you can take the opportunity to enjoy the moment and soak up the atmosphere.

Quotes attributable to Minister for Recreation, Sport and Racing Katrine Hildyard

I encourage all South Australians to take advantage of the free public transport on offer this Sunday for both the SANFL Grand Final and Lumary City-Bay Fun Run - two brilliant South Australian events in the heart of our city.

Making sport and recreation more accessible allows more people to enjoy it and participate and helps build stronger, more connected communities.
