The service is not a numbered bus service and will simply say "Stadium Shuttle" on inbound journeys and "Rail/Ferry Shuttle" on outbound journeys. Passengers are to be advised that the railway shuttle service leaves from the Commercial Road side of the station outside Blechynden Terrace. The ferry shuttle will leave from the main bus stop at the terminal.
