    Now why can’t they arrange the buses and trains like this for every home game at Mt Smart, instead of the die hard fans just turning up every week all the otherfans would turn up as well, especially if they give you a free ride with your match ticket like at Eden Park

    Mt Smart needs a station unless the council are looking at getting rid of the stadium.
