MAXX to Christmas in the Park

On Saturday 8 December, Aucklanders heading to Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park in the Auckland Domain can avoid parking hassles and leave the car at home, as public transport services by the Auckland Regional Transport Authority will make it easy to celebrate Christmas early this year.

A shuttle bus from Britomart to the Auckland Domain will be operating every 15 minutes between 4.30pm and 8pm. The shuttle bus will depart the Auckland Domain for Britomart from 9.30pm until approximately 10.10pm when Christmas in the Park is scheduled to finish. The shuttle bus costs $2 each way (cash only). No concessionary fares/passes will be accepted on this special service.

Regular Link bus services will travel via Newmarket and Auckland Hospital every 10 to 15 minutes. A one-way ticket costs $1.60 and can be purchased on the bus.

Special buses will be operating from various parts of Auckland to the Domain.

Additional train services to Christmas in the Park will be operating. Passengers planning to use the train can travel to either Boston Road or Newmarket, as both are only a short walk from the Domain.

Western Line rail passengers are advised that the usual Saturday bus replacements between Henderson and Waitakere will be in place.

Passengers should allow plenty of time to get to the Domain in time for the show.

Aucklanders planning to take public transport services to and from Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park can get more information about regular and additional services to the Auckland Domain from MAXX on (09) 366 6400 or at www.maxx.co.nz

    Gordon Campbell: On lessons for Labour from the UK election
    If the polls were right – and the pollsters kept telling us how accurate they’d been in 2010, and even Nate Silver was getting the same results – there seemed no way that the British Labour Party could lose last Thursday’s British election. With Labour predicted to win around 270 seats and the Scottish National Party batting around 55-60 seats, Labour seemed to be home free. But…as we now know, things didn’t turn out that way.
