MANOEUVRING goosenecks and trucks through the rose-laden streets of Warwick seems a little impractical so Rose City Shoppingworld is providing a free shuttle bus for polocrosse players and their families during the next two weeks.

Players and supporters had their first trip from Morgan Park to the CBD yesterday and will continue to venture into town to buy supplies.

Rose City marketing manager Stevie McGregor said the shuttle service was a convenience for campers.

"It means they are able to travel from the grounds to the centre to fulfil any shopping requirements without having to move their vehicles, which could prove a hassle," Mrs McGregor said.

The service means local businesses will benefit from the influx of people.

Warwick Polocrosse Club vice president Warwick Fraser said a lot of money would flow into the town.

"The economic benefit from the Barastoc Polocrosse Nationals is expected to run into the millions of dollars," Mr Fraser said. "Visitors to the 2007 Polocrosse World Cup injected more than $2.4 million into the local economy and a further $1.3 million worth of expenditure was received from visitors during the 2003 Polocrosse World Cup."

Buses will operate twice a day on week days.
