On Wednesday 11 June, Aucklanders who want to see the Superstars of WWE SmackDown/ECW Live in action can 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.

Wrestling 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 event finishes. On the Southern and Eastern Lines, a train will depart Britomart for Papakura (via Glen Innes) at 11.55pm and for Otahuhu (via Ellerslie) 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).
