Always allow more time than you expect to get to and from the venue and aim to arrive at least 45 minutes before the start of the event. Traffic congestion can be heavy for the majority of events particularly if there are other events taking place in the precinct or during peak commuter travel times.
There is a large complimentary car park on site however space is subject to availability. We recommend car pooling or parking in nearby, well-lit streets.
For some events a Traffic Management Plan may be in place which will restrict entry and exit points. To see if there is a Traffic Management Plan in place for an event, visit tfc.govt.nz
Mobility Parking is available directly opposite the front entry of the Arena in the main car park. Only vehicles with the appropriate Mobility Pass will be allowed entry.
Metro Bus Stops are located nearby on Lincoln Road and Whiteleigh Ave. Visit metroinfo.org.nz for more information and timetables.
Taxis are generally welcome to drop you off within the Arena precinct. Subject to events, there is a taxi rank available outside the main entrance of the Arena. If you require a taxi pick up post event we recommend you book this well in advance as taxis can be in high demand in particular later in the evening.
We do recommend calling 0800 VBASE NZ to check whether taxis are allowed into the car park for your specific event, as occasionally they may not be able to enter the Arena car park.
Pedestrian access is available from all points of entry in to the area. Please stay on footpaths and sides of roads for your safety and that of others.
Bike racks are available for cyclists and are located opposite the main entrance of the Arena in the car park area. Please ensure that you lock your bikes securely to the rack.
