  • Park & Ride services will now be operated using school buses and will commence 2 hours prior to game time.
    • Reminder that the Blue Bombers have a $5.00 charge per person for Park & Ride users when attending a Bomber game or special event.
    • The Park & Ride service for 2017 will use only school buses departing the game and as a result, riders should exercise patience while loading
