The Winnipeg Blue Bombers believe the worst of the transportation headaches involving Investors Group Field are now behind us.
Club vice-president Jim Bell says traffic flowed much more smoothly in and out of the Taylor Swift concert on Saturday than it did during a pre-season Bombers game earlier in the month: more buses, more police, and earlier fan access.
There continued to be "hot spots" — there were complaints, for instance, of long delays after the concert for motorists who’d parked in a university parkade.
More changes will be announced before this Thursday’s Bombers regular season opener against the Montreal Alouettes.
Those changes will include a tripling of the number of buses that will operate out of eight park-and-ride stations.
Winnipeg Transit’s Dave Wardrop told reporters that there will be 196 buses operating in and out of the stadium on Thursday — 116 school buses and 80 transit buses, more than triple the 61 buses that were dedicated to the last Bombers game.
