The city of Regina says over 8000 people used the free Rider Transit service to and from Saturday’s football game.
That is an increase of 600 from the Bryan Adams concert on May 27.
The city says when Rider games were being played at Taylor Field, around 1000 fans would take advantage of the service.
With the new stadium and a lack of parking in Evraz Place, the city and the football club are asking fans to take buses that go and to from four Regina shopping centres and two locations downtown.
Mosaic Stadium will officially open on July 1 when the Riders host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Fans hoping to attend both the Rider game and the fireworks in Wascana Park on Canada Day will be able to use the free Rider Transit service.
After the game on July 1, anyone who wants to get close to the fireworks can use the Southland Mall shuttle and they will be dropped off on the north side of Wascana Park.
The fireworks are expected to begin at approximately 11 p.m. At the conclusion of the fireworks, buses will depart from College Avenue between Albert Street and Smith Street to each of the four mall locations.
