Sun Metro to Offer Park & Ride to Chihuahuas Games

Service to Run on Opening Day, Then Fridays-Sundays

Baseball fans attending the El Paso Chihuahuas Triple-A baseball opening game may not have to try and find parking Downtown. Sun Metro will offer Park+Ride service from five different locations around the city when the brand new baseball stadium is broken in on April 28, 2014.

Park+Ride locations include: the Mission Valley Transfer Center on Alameda Avenue; the Westside Transfer Center on Remcon Circle; the Northeast Transit Terminal on Dyer Street; the Eastside Transit Terminal at Cielo Vista Mall; and the Park and Ride location at Edgemere Boulevard and R.C. Poe Road in Far East El Paso.

Passengers will need $3.00 for the round trip fare, in exact change. Those age five and under ride for free. Departures at all locations are at 5:30 p.m., while the Westside and Eastside terminals will have an additional departure at 5:45 p.m.

Return trips begin at the end of the 7th inning, then depart again at the end of the 9th inning with buses running for 30 minutes after the game ends. 

After opening day, the service will run Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Parking is free at the Park+Ride locations. Full information can be found at Sun Metro’s website, www.sunmetro.net
