What time should I be at the pickup location?
To ensure an on-time departure with SportsFanExpress, you should check the website for the newest departure time(s) and plan to arrive at least 30 minutes early before departure. The buses generally pull into the designated pickup locations 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time.
How will the boarding process work?
Passengers who pre-purchased tickets online will be given priority boarding approximately 2 hours before the game begins. Once online ticketed passengers are loaded, cash walk up customers may purchase a ticket and board the bus. Buses will begin departing as soon as they fill up. The final bus will depart for Qualcomm Stadium approximately 1 hour before game time.
What can I bring on the bus?
Passengers may bring the personal items they intend to carry into the game. Please, no onboard consumption of food or drinks and definitely no alcohol.
How long will it take to get to the stadium?
Depending upon your pickup location and assuming clear road conditions, the trip usually takes about about a half hour. Buses have a separate, faster entrance into stadium parking.
Are restrooms provided on the bus?
Are there any stops on the way?
The plan is a direct route, but if there is a low turnout for one location, we may route to pick up at another location on the way.

We will be parking the buses in the bus parking area of the parking lot. They will be secured all day.

What if I miss the bus?
Each departing and returning route has only one departure time so it is important that you do not miss the bus. If you do miss the bus you will be responsible for your own transportation back to and from the final location.
What time do the buses leave the stadium?
Buses begin boarding as soon as the game ends. The final buses will depart approximately 30 minutes after the end of the game.
How will I know which bus to take back to my pickup location?
When you arrive at bus, you will receive a color-coded Reboarding Ticket. A color-coded flag will identify your bus for your return. For example, if your destination is designated as the RED stop, you will receive a RED Reboarding Ticket. After the game, all the buses will be parked in the location where you were dropped off. Color coded flags will identify the appropriate bus for your return trip. For routes with more than one bus assigned, a flag will be placed next to the bus closest to the exit and that bus will board first, making stops at all locations for that route on the way home.
