Transport delays 'not good enough'

10:03 pm on 2 March 2014

Auckland Transport says public transport delays after Saturday night's Bruce Springsteen concert weren't good enough and shouldn't be repeated on Sunday.

Concert-goers have complained on social media and to Radio New Zealand that they had to wait for over an hour to get on a train from Mount Smart Stadium when the concert ended.

Auckland Transport special events manager John Strawbridge says it took about an hour and a half to get everyone onto either trains or buses.

Mr Strawbridge says that's not good enough and the aim is for a 60 to 70 minute timeframe.

He says extra trains and buses will be travelling from the stadium on Sunday.
