Sun Metro: Ride the Streetcar, Bus to Annual Hyundai Sun Bowl Game

Fans planning to attend the Hyundai Sun Bowl on Monday, December 31, 2018 can avoid the stress of traffic and parking by riding Sun Metro and El Paso Streetcar.

Sun Metro buses will operate direct routes from various locations. The routes will run from Downtown, East Side, West Side, Northeast, Mission Valley, and the El Paso Airport.

Sun Bowl fans may begin boarding at 9:00 a.m. at all designated locations, while the game starts at Noon. The drop-off site will be located near the Glory Road Transit Center, located on the north end of the Sun Bowl Stadium.

Return trips will begin at the end of the third quarter. Fans will be picked up at the same location as the drop-off site for each of the routes. All schedules and hours are listed on the website.

The El Paso Streetcar will service all 27 stops along both its loops with a drop off location at the Glory Road Transit Center, also on the north end of the stadium. Service hours and pick-up/drop-off locations may be found on the Streetcar website.

IMPORTANT TIPS TO REMEMBER:

  • Route services may be delayed before and after the game due to traffic congestion
  • NO FOOD or DRINKS allowed on the buses and streetcars
  • NO COOLERS or UMBRELLAS allowed in the Sun Bowl
  • NO RE-ENTRY to the stadium after kickoff
  • PASSENGERS ARE REMINDED TO HAVE EXACT CHANGE FOR THE FAREBOX. (Drivers do not have access to currency. The farebox can only issue change cards for use on Sun Metro services.)
