Auckland’s rail network will be closed so KiwiRail and City Rail Link can carry out important rail improvement work. This means trains will not be operating on 3 December, however there are a number of other ways to get to Eden Park.


Travel on scheduled bus services is included with your ticket from midday until end of services that day. Simply show your concert ticket when you board. Please use Journey Planner on the  AT Mobile app to plan your journey.

Free special event buses will be going to and from Eden Park before and after the concert. It is expected that event buses will be heavily patronised, so we recommend walking if you live close by. Please see the downloadable map for exact locations when leaving Eden Park.
