I’m coming up to see the Foo Fighters in a few weeks. I will be staying near Mangere Bridge.

What’s the best option for getting home after the concert? Is public transport the best way?

I suspect Uber prices will be excessive at the time due to demand but I will give that a go. I also have a rental car but I imagine parking will be an issue?

Just looking for ideas cheers.

you could drive your car to one of the many nearby Mt Smart businesses selling parking for a fee , although you may get jammed in and have to wait to leave afterwards

 

 

 

or AT transport  they always put on free buses trains etc

I have always used the train to get to Mt Smart, but that was from town. I haven't tried it from South of Mt Smart.

Take the bus. Less hassle and you're only going a short distance really.

i dont believe the train goes to onehunga after the concert they use the line to store trains for the run to the city to try and clear out penrose station as fast as they can.

 

we live in mangere bridge and will just drive in early and leave a car on the side of the road, then drive home.

would involve at least 1 transfer at onehunga, and at that time of the night could be up to half an hour.

I understand there are special event services from all across the network that run direct to the various venues for major events. I see them all the time going to/from Mt Eden and I'm aware they do direct buses to Mt Smart and North Shore Stadium at Albany from all over Auckland. Not sure if the OP's event has this arrangement with AT but a check of the AT website will reveal all the necessary info. These buses are sometimes free for ticket holders as well.

You will have to walk at least 1/3 of the way home to get back to your car was maybe an option to park near old mangere bridge and walk, probably only 4 or 5kms I guess
