Rider Transit Kicks off 2019 Season

Pro Football

Rider Transit service will resume on Thursday, June 6 at 4:45 p.m. ahead of the Saskatchewan Roughriders preseason game vs. Winnipeg at Mosaic Stadium.

We are pleased to welcome the University of Regina as a new pickup location. Please see the attached map which outlines a number of convenient on-campus parking locations which are free on all evenings and weekends.

The stop at Victoria Square Mall is no longer available.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders provide free transit service through the City of Regina from five convenient locations:

1. University of Regina *New*

2. Northgate Mall

3. Southland Mall

4. Downtown:

* Sask. Drive and Hamilton Street

* Victoria Avenue and Scarth Street

5. Warehouse District:

* 6th Avenue and Hamilton Street

* Dewdney Avenue and Scarth Street

* Dewdney Avenue and Lorne Street.

Shuttles begin pick up at these locations two hours and 15 minutes prior to kickoff, with the last shuttle leaving 30 minutes before kickoff. The last shuttle will leave the stadium one hour after the game is over.

Rider Transit Tips:

* Arrive early at the pickup points – Between 6,000-7,000 fans utilize the free service at home games.

* If you want to leave the game early, buses start returning to their pickup locations at the beginning of the fourth quarter.

* You don’t need to rush to catch the bus after the game is over – Rider Transit will be available up to one hour after the game.

* The Downtown and Warehouse District locations have the quickest routes to and from the games.

* The Victoria Square Mall pickup location has been moved to the University of Regina on University Drive West, adjacent to Parking Lot 2.

If you are using Rider Transit and plan to drink, please ensure that you plan a safe ride home from your drop-off location.
