PASSENGER DROP OFF ZONE (ALSO SUITABLE FOR DISABLED ACCESS)
 
If you need to drop passengers close to the Arena, the designated area is on Quay Street by our pedestrian bridge/ramp:

From State Highway 1 from the South, take the 16 East "Port"exit (429B-C). If coming from the North, it's Exit 426-B. Follow it to the bottom of Grafton Gully and from there continue straight on under the railway bridge, along The Strand until it terminates at the intersection with Quay Streets and Tamaki Drive. Turn left onto Quay Street and travel to the drop-off point which is approximately 500 metres along at the base of our footbridge/ramp. (You'll see the shopping complex before it, and then the big Vector Arena banners on your left).  If you're coming from the central city, you will travel past the Arena on your right and then you'll need to turn right into the shopping complex in order to turn around and approach the dropoff from the right direction on Quay Street (Try not to miss this turning point as there is no right turn all the way down onto Tamaki Drive).
