The free Metro Boundary Rider services chartered by North Melbourne Football Club carried 1655 passengers to the game and 1462 on the return trip. As well as giving football fans a great way to get to the match, the Boundar y Rider ser vice also significantly reduced traffic and parking hassles for other football patrons and local residents. The services ran from Kingston, the city and the Derwent Entertainment Centre, and picked up passengers from Church Street after the game. The free Boundary Rider service will also operate for the next North Melbourne game, when they play the West Coast Eagles on 7 July.
