Baseball fans attending the inaugural El Paso Chihuahuas game at Southwest University Park can avoid traffic and parking anxiety by riding with Sun Metro!

Sun Metro is offering Park + Ride from five locations with direct bus service to the OPENING GAME DAY. Round-trip fare is just $3!

The Chihuahuas will take on Fresno Grizzlies at 7:05 p.m. Monday, April 28, 2014. Pick-up times will vary depending on location.

Passengers are reminded to have exact change for the farebox. While the farebox can issue change cards for use on Sun Metro buses, drivers do not have access to currency. Reduced fares and bus passes will NOT be accepted on these routes. Children 5 and under ride for free and must be accompanied by an adult.

The drop-off site will be near the Missouri and Oregon intersection, located east of the ballpark.
The first return trip will depart at the end of the 7th inning and all other return trips will depart at the end of the 9th inning and continue for 30 minutes after the game has ended. Fans will be picked up at the SAME location as the drop-off site for each of the routes.


NOTE: FOLLOWING THE OPENING HOME GAME, SUN METRO WILL PROVIDE PARK+RIDE SERVICE TO THE BALLPARK DURING FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY HOME GAMES ONLY, THROUGHOUT THE 2014 SEASON; WITH DEPARTURES STARTING ABOUT AN HOUR AND HALF BEFORE GAME TIME.
