The Rail and Maritime Trade Union (RMTU) has given notice of its intent to commence industrial action from Monday 26 February to Friday 16 March.

Auckland Transport and Transdev have developed a temporary timetable to minimise disruption and provide consistent rail services on these lines during this period.

Customers can expect Southern, Western and Eastern line weekday peak train services at 20-minute intervals, with inter-peak and off-peak services running as normal. Many trains on these services will run with six cars, which can hold 900 passengers, to help reduce impact.

Onehunga and Pukekohe weekday train services and weekend train services across all lines will remain on their usual timetable.

Ferry and bus services will operate as normal.

Auckland Transport

Catch public transport or walk the fan trail to the semi-final

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 is back in Auckland on Tuesday (24 March) with the first semi-final. Public transport is the easiest way to get to Eden Park to see the action which starts at 2pm. Travel on trains and special event buses is included with your match ticket.

We recommend that you travel early to avoid the crowds. Tuesday is a normal business day so services are likely to be busy.


Travel on special event buses is included with your match ticket. Services operate to Eden Park starting at around midday from Auckland City Centre (outside Civic Theatre, Queen St), Northern Busway stations, Takapuna (Hurstmere Rd by Wilson’s car park), Manukau (Leyton Way), Pakuranga Plaza, Botany Town Centre, Newmarket (19 Remuera Rd) and Mt Eden (train station and village).

Remember to keep your match ticket for the ride home.

Northern Express

Additional Northern Express buses will operate after midnight on Tuesday departing from Britomart. These extra services are at 12.15am, 12.30, 12.45 and 1.00.


Travel on trains from midday until the end of services after the match is included with your ticket. Extra trains will be provided after the game until the crowds are cleared, and remember to keep your match ticket for the ride home.

Western Line:

Additional trains will operate on the Western Line.

After the match, Morningside is the station for all passengers travelling west.

Southern/Eastern Line:

Regular train services operate before the match but there will be extra services from Britomart afterwards.

When the game is over, Kingsland will be the station for passengers heading back to Britomart where they can transfer onto Eastern and Southern Line trains.


The Downtown Ferry Terminal is next to the Britomart Transport Centre; ferry passengers can easily change to a bus or train to get to Eden Park. Normal fares apply on the ferries.

Road closures

During the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 there will be road closures and parking restrictions in the vicinity of Eden Park.

Please note there will be some mobility parking available on Cricket Ave.

Cycling and Walking

There is some bike parking at Eden Park and the ground is an easy walk from many of Auckland’s inner suburbs, it’s a comfortable 50 minute walk from Auckland’s city centre.
