No trains to Eden Park this weekend

No trains to Eden Park this weekend

Auckland Transport is reminding those attending the Investec Super Rugby Aotearoa game this weekend to plan ahead, with the Western Line (including Britomart to Eden Park) train services not running.

Special Event buses and scheduled AT Metro services will still operate so Blues fans can get to the game in time for the kick-off at 7:05pm

Western Line services aren’t running because of work on the line for the City Rail Link project.

Bus

Travel on all AT Metro bus services is included in your ticket on game day from three hours before kick-off to the last service of the night. Bus routes 20, 22, and 24 all go to the Kingsland/Eden Park area, these are frequent services.

If you are taking the NX1 bus service from the North Shore, get off on Customs Street and go to the stop on Commerce Street next to Kiwibank to catch the direct special event bus to Eden Park.

You can use the Journey Planner for more details on getting to Eden Park from your current location.
