The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have partnered up with a local company to offer football fans another way of getting to Investors Group Field on game days.

EventRide is a new app founded by former federal politician Rod Bruinooge.

“When a football fan decides they want to leave their car at home, EventRide will find them someone who is prepared to share a ride to the game,” said Bruinooge, EventRide’s CEO.

The app matches fans with each other, who can either request or offer a ride to a concert of sports event.

The app is another way Bomber fans can ensure a smooth commute to the stadium, aside from the Bombers’ park and ride program, free post-game Winnipeg Transit service and the bike valet.

EventRide can be downloaded for free at
