One of Auckland’s biggest sporting events is back, the Downer NRL Auckland Nines are on at Eden Park this Saturday and Sunday (6/7 February 2016).
Travel on trains and special event buses is included with your pre-purchased game ticket. Tickets shown on your mobile device will also be accepted.
Last year two out of three people attending the Nines used public transport to get there.
Special event buses will operate to Eden Park from the City Centre, Northern Busway stations, Manukau, Botany, Pakuranga, Newmarket, Mt Eden, Takapuna, and return.
On Saturday services to Eden Park start at 11am and operate every 15 minutes until 2:30pm or until the crowd has cleared. At the end of the day buses will depart from 6:30pm until the crowd is cleared.
On Sunday services to the park operate from 9:30am to 1pm and from Eden Park services start at 6:30pm.
All other bus services will be operating to their scheduled timetables and standard fares will apply.
You can travel on the trains with your event ticket from two hours before kick-off, until the end of services for the day but remember to keep your game ticket for the ride home.
Please note balloons can’t be taken on trains or into stations due to the risk of them touching the overhead power lines.
