For years Sun Metro has been offering a park and ride service to UTEP football games, but this year they are making one change. Sun Metro is now offering six park and ride locations and direct bus service to all UTEP home games this season.
The public is reminded that the outside lanes along Oregon Street are bus-only lanes - parking is NOT allowed. Don't risk being towed!

Bus trips are $3 roundtrip-reduced fares and bus passes will NOT be accepted on the special routes. Children 5 and under ride free and must be accompanied by an adult.

Parking at most Sun Metro facilities is free, except at the Union Plaza Transit Terminal ($5 flat fee before 9 p.m.) and the Glory Road Transfer Center ($10 flat fee). Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis.

This year Sun Metro is introducing a NEW Park and Ride location at Edgemere near R.C. Poe. The new Park and Ride location is ideal for El Pasoans who live near or east of Joe Battle Boulevard/Loop 375.

PASSENGERS ARE REMINDED TO HAVE EXACT CHANGE FOR THE FARE BOX.

The drop-off sites will be around Memorial Gym, located on the north end of the Sun Bowl Stadium.

Return trips will begin at the end of the 3rd quarter. Fans will be picked up at the SAME location as the drop-off site for each of the routes.

IMPORTANT TIPS TO REMEMBER:
• Bus service may be delayed before AND after the game due to traffic congestion
• NO FOOD or DRINKS allowed on the buses
• NO COOLERS or UMBRELLAS allowed in the Sun Bowl (see full list of prohibited items at www.tailgating.utep.edu <http://www.tailgating.utep.edu>)
• NO TAILGATING allowed in any parking garages

First. Live. Local. But not always accurate.

Six is the number of park and ride locations, not the number of home games, which totals five this year.
