NZ Cup Day Free Bus Service

Website Image - Cup Day Red BusAddington is once again providing a free drop‐off bus service for on‐course patrons that are attending New Zealand’s biggest race day, New Zealand Trotting Cup Day on Tuesday, 14 November 2017.

Red Bus will drop-off on-course patrons to Riccarton Road, near Trevinos Restaurant and outside McDonalds on Papanui Road.The bus service will leave the Wrights Road end of the course from 5.30pm every half an hour through to 7.00pm shuttling patrons back to the Riccarton and Merivale stops.

In conjunction with the Christchurch City Council, Addington is taking a very strong and vocal stance towards drink driving. Plan Ahead – Don’t Drink and Drive.

There will be big screen messages through out the day on course.

We are strongly encouraging the use of our free bus service or using public transport to get you to and from the course. There is also a dedicated Blue Star Taxi Rank on course which will have a large supply of cabs available through out the day and an extra supply at peak times.

Should you decide to bring your car to the track please make sure you have a designated sober driver. Parking will be at a premium. As with previous years there will be a strong police presence.
