Sun Metro will continue providing Park+Ride to the next eight Chihuahuas’ home games taking place May 10 through May 18.

Sun Metro’s Park+Ride can help fans avoid added stress caused by traffic congestion due in part to the complete closure of Interstate-10 on Sunday, May 11, by the Texas Department of Transportation.

Sun Metro is offering PARK+RIDE FROM SIX LOCATIONS with direct bus service to the next eight games to reduce traffic congestion and obtain more information on ridership demands. Round-trip fare is just $3! The public is reminded that departures from the Park+Ride lots take place an hour and a half before the game and most of the Park+Ride lots have only one departure.

NOTE: On Sunday, May 11, Route 18 from the Westside Transfer Center will depart at 11 and 11:15 a.m. (30 minutes earlier) in anticipation of heavy traffic, due to the complete closure of I-10.

PASSENGERS ARE REMINDED TO HAVE EXACT CHANGE ($3 round trip) FOR THE FAREBOX. 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.

Parking is free at five of the six Park+Ride locations and on a first-come, first-serve basis. Parking at the Glory Road Transfer Center will cost $1 per hour, $10 max.

The drop-off site will be near the Missouri and Oregon intersection, located about a block east of the ballpark.

There will THREE return trips. The first return trip will depart at the end of the 7th inning, the second return trip will be at the end of the game and the final trip will be an hour after the game. Fans will be picked up at the SAME location as the drop-off site for each of the routes.

Passengers who use Sun Metro’s LIFT can call (915)212-0100 to schedule their trips. LIFT vehicles will drop off and pick up on the southwest corner of Franklin and Durango, near the west entrance of the ballpark.
