Thanks, Jason. I was speaking more to the only real LRT that has been committed to, which is McMaster to Eastgate. Sure, going from University Plaza to Mac is only a few extra minutes, but it would involve parking on the street, in a parking lot, and paying. When I park at the Plaza, I just pull up, lock the car, and hop on the bus.

I also did some searching for who actually pays for the bus on game day. All I could find was on the Ticats site saying it's provided by the HSR, in partnership with the team. The HSR site nor the city's site didn't bring up anything meaningful.

And if the LRT does ever come into existence, would it be free on game day? I think this is a great way to introduce people in the suburbs to riding public transit. I don't take transit with any regularity save for the shuttle to the stadium, but it does make me think that if we had a coherent bus schedule in the suburbs I'd be tempted to take it more.
