Plan Ahead

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 rugby or event.

By Car

Traffic congestion can be heavy for the majority of events particularly if there are other events taking place in the area of Orangetheory Stadium or during peak commuter travel times.

Jack Hinton Drive (between Whiteleigh Ave and Twigger St) is closed on large event days, off-street parking is also often restricted. To check to see if there is a Traffic Management Plan in place for an event, visit Transport for Christchurch


Parking is very limited in and around the stadium on event days, particularly when events are on at the Arena or Raceway.

Disability parking is available onsite via the Wrights Road entry. Vehicles must have an appropriate and valid Mobility Pass visible.

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.

By Bus

Metro Bus Stops are located nearby on Lincoln Road and Whiteleigh Ave. Visit for more information and timetables.


Pedestrian access is available from all points of entry into the area. Please stay on footpaths and sides of roads for your safety and that of others.

By Bike

Bike racks are available for cyclists and are by the entrance gates. Please ensure that you lock your bikes securely to the rack. 

By Electric Scooter

Park in the City or take the bus to the Bus Exchange and rent an electric scooter to take you to the Stadium. A number of scooters will be available to rent in the immediate area around Christchurch Stadium after the match has concluded.
