Not just trains but also Northern Express buses will be free for ticketholders for travel to the historic SKYCITY Auckland Double Header at Mount Smart Stadium on Saturday, April 7.
The first NRL double header staged in New Zealand kicks off with ‘home’ team the Wests Tigers taking on the 2017 premiership-winning Melbourne Storm (5.00pm kick-off) followed by the Vodafone Warriors facing beaten 2017 grand finalists the North Queensland Cowboys (7.30pm kick-off).
For the season opener against Gold Coast on St Patrick’s Day, integrated ticketing was available across Auckland’s rail network as it will be for the rest of the Vodafone Warriors’ 11 home games this year. It’s the first time the club has had free train travel included with memberships and pre-purchased match tickets for every game in a season.
As an added benefit exclusively for the SKYCITY Auckland Double Header, Northern Express buses have also been included in the integrated ticketing mix.
Fans who have bought their tickets will be able to travel free on the rail network to Penrose Station or on the Northern Express buses to Lower Albert Street in the central city (it's a short walk from there to the trains at Britomart).
And after the game, all the train and bus travellers need to do is to stroll back to the same spots for their free trip home. The service is available from three hours before kick-off in the NRL match until the rail and Northern Express services end on April 7.
All fans need to do is to show bus drivers, train managers or security personnel their match day ticket or electronic ticket (remember to keep your tickets).
So, make the most of it. It’s going to be the easiest and cheapest way to travel to the SKYCITY Auckland Double Header.
