Someone at the #Bombers needs to be thrown under the bus for this terrible inaugural event... if the bus ever shows up.

howwon @howwon

I wonder who is going to get thrown under the bus, for the transit fiasco?

Neil Douglas @douglaszoo

I guess they didn't have any extra time to plan for this............wait a minute!! #fail

Brent Bellamy @brent_bellamy

Could somebody please let me know if the Bombers score! (attached photo of obstructed-view seat)

Christian Monnin @ChristianMonnin

finish rapid transit and move the stadium

mikewpg1ca @mikewpg1ca

I came over an hour before kick off and it was a mess then, can't imagine how bad it got closer to KO.

Jon Adaskin@JonAdaskin

decided to walk out to investors group field, good thing I walked, I'd be late if I took the bus! #fail

From now on I'm into the idea of cycling here, the distance from most of the city is not really that much

Paul Little @metal2000

Terrible. After *every* bus was full in Charleswood, a few of us strangers carpooled to at least get nearby!

sidney sinclair @sidsinc

That feeling of relief when you finally get to your seats.

Paul Little @metal2000

Not nearly enough buses for the #Bombers fans wanting to get to the game. Terrible planning. #Embarrassing

Ben Brisebois @BenBrisebois

I just waited 10 mins to go one stop so now literally the whole bus got off and we are walking from Pembina & University

Ben Brisebois@BenBrisebois

Guy beside me makes the point that we're at the stage where it would be faster to get off and walk
