Heading to IG Field? We have several transportation options for football fans

July 30, 2021

The Winnipeg Transit Stadium Station at IG Field.

After the pandemic paused the CFL last year, fans will once again be making their way to IG Field this summer to see the Winnipeg Blue Bombers defend their Grey Cup title.

The team is encouraging people arrive early and is offering its own parking and park and ride services, but there are a few other options for ticket holders to get to the stadium.

Winnipeg Transit

Since the last football season, our completed Southwest Transitway opened, with new routes and schedules. It connects to the first stage of the transitway and runs from Downtown to the neighbourhoods of Southwest Winnipeg, including the University of Manitoba and IG Field.

Two park-and-ride stations can be found along the BLUE rapid transit line with more than 1,000 on-site free parking spots. They can be found at the Clarence, and Seel stations.

All transit users are reminded they are required to wear a mask while on our buses and self-screen for symptoms before riding. Passengers are also reminded to maintain a reasonable separation from others in accordance with the current Provincial public health orders. Masks and hand-sanitizer will be available to transit passengers following the game.

We also appreciate your patience during boarding as we work to ensure riders make it to and from the game safely.

Active transportation

If you’d rather cycle or walk to the stadium, there is a new active transportation path running alongside the entire Southwest Transit that is a great option. You can also connect to it using any of the existing active transportation routes that intersect with the Transitway. It features bridges just for active transportation users over McGillivray Boulevard and Pembina Highway.

The route is also illuminated at night to enhance safety and visibility. Each station along the Southwest Transitway is also outfitted with bike lockers, which allows you easy transitions from bike to bus.

Once you get to IG Field, there is a Bike Valet outside of Gate 3 that is operated by the Winnipeg Football Club.

Driving

For people who prefer to drive to the game, it is important to keep in mind we are also in the middle of a busy road construction season. You are encouraged to download the Waze app and use it hands-free to help get to the game as efficiently as possible.

Waze will advise you know of lane closures and give you route options to minimize the impact of the road construction. Parking information is available on the Blue Bomber website.
