The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are testing new family buses on three park and ride routes for Sunday’s Banjo Bowl.
The buses will service McPhillips St. Station (P&R #1), Club Regent (P&R #2) and Taylor/Hydro (P&R #4).
Families with young children can park at one of the three locations and travel to Investors Group Field on a regular park and ride bus. After the game, they can walk to the east end of the Winnipeg Soccer Complex parking lot where designated family buses will be waiting to transport them back to the park and ride lots.
A limited number of family buses will be available and once full, fans will be directed to the regular park and ride buses. Blue Bomber staff will be on hand to direct riders and signage will be posted.
The cost for a ride is $5 per person (cash only) for adults and free for children under 12. Fare is collected upon arrival to the stadium, and is free to ride to a drop-off location following the game.
