are there still special match day buses from Coventry (outside the train station if I remember correctly) to and from the Ricoh on match days?

It said so in the OLSC away guide. Every 15 minutes. I had to wait an hour last time we played there though

the away guide wrote: The easiest way to get there is to take the frequent, free shuttle buses from the Coventry train station to the
stadium.
These will be operating every 15 minutes from 12noon up until kick-off and then after the game.
In addition to the free shuttle buses there are several buses that drop off at the Retail Park opposite the Ricoh
Arena (approx. 10 min walk).
Service 4 provides a link to the Retail Park from Holbrooks and Walsgrave (University Hospital) via the City
Centre and Stoke Hill with buses running all day, every day.
Service 5 links the Retail Park with Holbrooks and Coundon continuing to Earlsdon and Torrington Avenue via
the City Centre with buses running every day
Services 20, 20A and 20E all serve the Retail Park via Foleshill Road from the City Centre with frequent buses
throughout the day.
Coventry Arena Train Station - Arena Park Shopping Centre is also an option. This station is located within
5 minutes walking distance from the Ricoh Arena. On Wasps match days the service is one train per hour in
either direction with double carriage capacity.

Should be easy enough and free too

Again though I waited a long while for one last time. Hopefully it's better.

The Four Provinces Pub Coventry would like to invite all travelling Leinster fans to come and join us for live music after the game on Sunday, if you show your match ticket you get a free shot!! We have a wide range of Irish beverages on offer from Guinness to West Coast Coolers. Hopefully we’ll see you there on Sunday.

I'm in BLK 24, but I'm sure there is no issue moving around



I'm not going to reply on a bus outside a train station. You could be in a queue of 5,000 people. Taxi will be about £12 per person from the airport

Been there three times before one Munster and two Leinster games always been a really cr@p place to get out of am considering all options at the moment to get to the airport from the ground, do you plan to organise a taxi to pick you up after the game ?. Am thinking of trying to get a train across !.

Trains, (if they are stopping at Coventry Arena) will be a) rammed and b) hourly. I've always got the service bus from the Sainsbury's stop in town to avoid the crowds at the Station, and on the Foleshill Road on the way back. Taxi using Uber is around £30 from the Stadium to the Airport and takes around 20-30 mins (Straight down the M6/M42).

I booked a rental car for this weekend and will be driving back to Birmingham airport for a 19:55 flight after the match. Have a few empty seats so if anyone wants a lift let me know
