Event Shuttle Buses: $10 Return
We want this event to be huge and we want it to be enjoyable. One of the major obstacles we face is the ability to provide enough parking to allow participants to access the event without disrupting local residents. To answer this challenge, we are proposing to offer a shuttle bus service from some points around Auckland where you will find it easy to park your vehicle on a Sunday morning. By taking the shuttle bus, you are guaranteed to arrive at the race site in plenty of time for your event start, with the minimum of fuss and stress.
Shuttle bus tickets will be priced at $10 each and will be valid for one trip to Mission Bay and one trip back to the pick-up point. Your bus tickets will be sent out with your race number and they will most likely not be available to purchase in the last 2 weeks prior to the event.
Shuttle Bus Pick Up Locations
Locations other than Britomart are subject to sufficient numbers. A firm list of pick up locations will be confirmed no later than 4 weeks prior to the event. The following locations are currently proposed
- The Domain
- Smales Farm Bus Station
Shuttle Bus Timetable
Where numbers justify it, each location will have buses leaving at two times to head to Mission Bay. The early bus will arrive at Mission Bay no later than 7am, giving half marathon participants half an hour to drop their gear bag, warm up and get ready to race. The late bus will arrive no later than 8:30am and is suitable for those in the 10K Classic, 5K Fun Run & Walk and 2K Kids’ Dash.
A return bus service will operate to return you to your pick up point. All buses will depart Mission Bay as soon as possible after the conclusion of the Awards Ceremony at approximately 11am. Additionally, where possible, earlier shuttle services will operate between 9:30am and 10:30am. The exact departure times and drop-off locations for these services will be confirmed closer to the event. However, please be aware that earlier departures are not guaranteed. If you are booking a place on the shuttles, be prepared to remain at the race site until the conclusion of the Awards Ceremony.
