A matchday shuttle bus is to be trialled at Preston North End after receiving feedback from supporters following the announcement that the service will not run during the upcoming season.

The club has now confirmed that the service will be trialled for the opening three home games of the Championship campaign against Hull City, Rotherham United and Watford.

The reasoning behind the initial cancellation of the shuttle bus was due to less demand during the past few seasons, however there have been a number of supporters who have expressed their concern at the lack of transport to and from Deepdale during the 2022/23 season.

A return ticket will cost Β£5 per person, with supporters paying the driver on arrival.
