jessica burtnick / winnipeg free press files Bombers fans board Winnipeg Transit buses following the team�s first game at Investors Group Field in June 2013.

If the Winnipeg Blue Bombers organization doesn't feel fans should have to pay the full cost of a bus ride to Investors Group Field, I have a suggestion: Give the bus riders a coupon for discounted food or drinks while at the stadium (City withdraws transit offer, May 28).

This would reimburse the rider for the cost of the ride, which the Bombers feel is too high.

Money would be spent at businesses at the stadium, riders would get cheaper food, and the rest of Winnipeg isn't out of pocket. Everyone wins.
