REGINA, SK – Ahead of the July 1st regular season home opener, the Saskatchewan Roughriders Football Club has shared important transportation and parking information for fans travelling to and from Mosaic Stadium.
Fans are encouraged to consider all the free and easy options to get to and from the stadium.
Fans driving to the game should note that game day street closures will begin 3.5 hours prior to kickoff and remain closed, up to one hour after the games conclusion. Elphinstone Street from Saskatchewan Drive to Dewdney Avenue will be restricted to pedestrian and City Transit access during this time.
RIDER TRANSIT PRESENTED BY WORKSAFE SASKATCHEWAN
Why drive when you can sit back and just ride the bus – for FREE!
Simply show your game ticket and hop aboard Rider Transit, beginning 2 hours and 15 minutes prior to kickoff with continuous pickup and drop off intervals leading up to game time.
Buses will depart from the Southland Mall, Northgate Mall, Victoria Square Mall, and Normanview Crossing, as well as two downtown locations: Delta Hotel (eastbound at Saskatchewan Drive & Hamilton Street) and Victoria Park (westbound at Victoria Avenue & Scarth Street).
Passengers travelling from the four shopping mall locations are unloaded in front of Mosaic Stadium on 10th Avenue, while the travellers from the two downtown locations are unloaded on 10th Avenue beside the Lawson Aquatic Centre. Buses depart from the same locations for up to an hour postgame.
With plenty of available parking – free on evenings and weekends – the downtown transit loop is a quick and easy option.
NOTE: Following the July 1st game, City Transit will be running shuttles from Mosaic Stadium to Wascana Park for the Canada 150 fireworks celebration. Following the fireworks shuttles will be running from Wascana back to all four mall locations and both downtown locations.
Why not take two wheels instead of four? Try our fully secured on site bike valet service on Rider game days beginning two hours prior to gates opening. The bike valet is fast and free. The bike valet is located outside gate #1 in the southwest corner of the stadium beside Confederation Park..
On site parking is by permit only. Fans who have pre-purchased permits for parking at Evraz Place or the Lawson Aquatic Centre should visit riderville.com/parking-map for route and entry/exit information. Please note – parking permits have been sold out for the 2017 season.
Parking along North Railway between Elphinstone Street and Albert Street is by permit only.
Street parking around Mosaic Stadium is based on open availability. Regular noted parking restrictions apply, as per City of Regina Bylaws.
Take your time and debrief following the game. Harvard’s Studio 620 and the Coors Light Party in The Park can be used as a meeting point as both will remain open for one hour following the game. Harvard’s Studio will also include a limited concession menu.
