Sydney Swifties, The “Tay Tay Express Train” Is Rolling Into Town

Taylor Swift mania has taken over Sydney as the city gears up for Swift’s highly anticipated Eras Tour concert at Accor Stadium.

More than 80,000 excited Swifties are expected to attend the first four-night shows, and even Sydney’s transportation system is getting into the Swift spirit.

In a unique move, Transport for NSW has temporarily rebranded Sydney’s trains to the “Tay Tay Express” for the four nights of Swift’s concerts. 

Ticket holders travelling to Olympic Park can enjoy a Taylor Swift-themed journey, with trains playing Swift’s hit songs and even a special announcement featuring the concert’s playlist.

Fans are enthusiastic about this creative initiative. “I’m starting to think that Transport of NSW is Tay-Tay’s biggest Swiftie fan of them all,” one fan shared on social media.

Accompanying the Taylor Swift fever is an additional warning from Ticketek. With unprecedented numbers expected at the concert, fans are advised to download the Ticketek app and add their tickets to their mobile wallets in advance to avoid congestion-related issues.

While Accor Stadium is assuring fans that the show will go on “rain or shine”, the Bureau of Meteorology has predicted “possibly severe” thunderstorms during the opening act by Sabrina Carpenter at 6:20pm. 

Parramatta is expected to embrace a scorching high of 36°C (96.8°F), intensifying the already heated atmosphere of Swift fever.

Despite the potential weather challenges, Swift is scheduled to hit the stage at 7:30pm.
