Flying Without Wings with MAXX

 

Westlife fans heading to Vector Arena on Saturday 10 May can avoid parking hassles and catch a MAXX bus, train or ferry 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.

After the concert finishes, train services from Britomart will be operating until 11.40pm on the Eastern Line and until just after midnight on the Southern and Western lines.

Regular ferry services from Auckland to Devonport will be running until approximately 1am, and NiteRider buses will leave from the Civic and St James between 1am and 3am.

Western Line train passengers planning to take the train to and from the concert are reminded that the usual Saturday bus replacements between Henderson and Waitakere will be in place.

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