Dancing on the ceiling, all night long, with MAXX

On Wednesday 28 November, Lionel Richie fans can leave the car at home and take the bus or train to Vector Arena, which is approximately 10 minutes’ walk from Britomart Transport Centre and the Downtown Ferry Terminal.

A regular timetable will be operating for all buses, trains and ferries travelling to Britomart, and normal fares will apply.

The Link bus, which stops on Beach Road close to Vector Arena, is a good way to get to the concert. Passengers can catch The Link from various locations around the CBD, Parnell, Newmarket, Karangahape Road and Ponsonby. The cash fare is $1.60 one way.

Fans are advised to allow plenty of time to get to Vector Arena in time for the show.

Additional train services will be operating after the concert finishes at approximately 11pm. On the Southern and Eastern Lines, a train will depart Britomart for Papakura (via Glen Innes) at 11.55pm and for Otahuhu (via Newmarket) at 11.50pm. On the Western Line, a train will depart Britomart for Waitakere at 11.52pm.

Fans heading home to the North Shore can catch an additional ferry to Devonport at 12am (midnight).

Aucklanders planning to use public transport to and from the Lionel Richie concert can get more information from MAXX on (09) 366 6400 or at www.maxx.co.nz
