Auckland Transport helping you get to big events this weekend

Whether you’re off to the NRL Auckland Nines, rapping along with Eminem or taking the family to the Auckland Lantern Festival this weekend there are public transport options to help get you there and home again.
 
On Saturday large crowds are expected at all events and at Britomart Transport Centre, as people make their way to Eden Park, Western Springs or Albert Park in the city.
 
Alongside regular services there are also special event buses and trains to help move people about.  We recommend you have a travel plan, know where your bus pick-up or departure point is and travel early.
 
If you plan to continue the party in the city, check for an early Sunday morning bus or train service home.
 
Take it easy, plan your journey, check timetables and fares for the weekend online at www.at.govt.nz or phone 09 366 6400 to talk to our AT Contact Centre team. 
 
Passengers are reminded that alcohol and drugs are not permitted for consumption on any of these services. For the safety of our commuters, any persons who are drunk or worse for wear will be refused travel.

It’s expected to be a sell-out crowd at the NRL Auckland Nines and if you have pre-purchased a ticket take the opportunity of included travel on train or special event bus to Eden Park. 
If you’re heading west after the event trains depart from Morningside Station, city bound services depart from Kingsland.
 
There will be some late night trains and bus services to help get you home from the city. 
 
Rapture 2014 – EMINEM
 
Eminem takes to the stage at Western Springs Stadium on Saturday 15 February.  Gates open 4pm.
 
Travel on trains, special event buses and the Northern Express is included with your concert ticket.
 
If you’re heading to both the NRL Auckland Nines and the concert there will be a sign-posted walking route from Eden Park to Western Springs.  It is approximately 3km long and should be a comfortable 30 minute walk.
