Transportation committee indicates Lansdowne events will rely on buses. There certainly wasn’t enough on-site parking for all football game patrons in the past, so having shuttles from parking locations could be appreciated over trying to find a parking spot and then walking.
Some believe citizens will refuse to the use buses to go to Lansdowne. The fact checker missed the CFL average attendance, which is 28,000, not 18,000. If the stadium is not consistently at 90% capacity or higher, this franchise will not survive. There is no opportunity for years with 18,000 average if the team is not doing well. Support your team through thick and thin or you won’t have it anymore.
Mayor Watson admits Lansdowne will face some parking challenges. What better time than with a totally new experience to set the parameters and expectations. This park will not provide a get-in, get-out mentality. Going to an event will be more relaxing if people use the transportation facilities provided (and probably take about the same amount of time as fighting for close parking yourself).
