The Agribition Express has been a popular mode of transportation for people heading into Canadian Western Agribition this week.
Today is the final day for the show and it’s expected to be extremely busy with the Cowboy Mounted Shooting, the Commercial Cattle Sale, the RBC Beef Supreme Challenge, the final go round of the Agribition Pro Rodeo and new for this year the Running with the Bulls event.
Agribition's CEO Chris Lane says people have been making good use of the Agribition Express as parking on the grounds can be challenging unless you’re here bright and early:
"We have a lot of parking on the grounds here but it does fill up pretty fast - usually the spots are full by 11am each day.
What we've done is expand the bus service. We've added more routes to the East side of Regina. Pickup locations are at malls in the North end, South end, and then at Vic's Square Mall in the East which is new this year.
For $3 each way you can hop on the bus, leave your car at the mall, and get into the gates for free at Agribition.
Also, anyone from out of town staying at one of the hotel association-member hotels gets free courtesy transportation right from the hotel to the grounds," he said.
Lane encourages people to catch the Agribition Express, get into the grounds for free, don’t worry about parking and enjoy the final day of the show.
