Improve transit for Eskimos’ games

Any Edmonton Eskimo Football Club fans, season tickets holders and or regular ticket buyers in St. Albert? Should St. Albert Transit have a park and ride to and from the games from Village Tree Transit Centre? If you think so please let Transit know at transit@st-albert.net .

I think they should. I’m a season seat holder and don’t drive and I take public transit to Kingsway Mall, then the ETS Park & Ride to and from the games. Some game nights I have to wait 20 to 30 minutes or more for the St. Albert bus 201. It would be easier to have a park and ride to and from St Albert. Even better, service to downtown Edmonton not every hour but how about two buses every half hour in the evenings?  During the daytime there are two buses to downtown: the 201 and 207, but after 6 p.m. only the 201 every hour runs. This makes it difficult if you’re going to an event at Rogers Place and that events ends at 9:30 p.m. (i.e. Oil Kings)  and you have to wait from 9:30 to 10:10 p.m. for the 201 to arrive.
