Auckland Transport said people can catch any regular bus service, event buses or train to Eden Park, and from midday the travel fee will be included with any match ticket.

Special event buses will be running in central city, North Shore, Newmarket, Mount Eden, Manukau City Centre, Botany Town Centre and Pakuranga Plaza.

Auckland Transport said speed restrictions may delay trains, so passengers might find the bus is the better option.

The match starts at 4pm this afternoon.
