All Aboard! SportsFanExpress offers transportation to 49er games

Aug 15, 2011 at 6:56 PM


It's that feeling of butterflies in your stomach. It's the smell of a charcoal grill. It's the sound of the crowd roaring in approval that gives you chills down your spine.

It's football season, and the San Francisco 49ers want you along for the ride.

Fortunately, Silverado Stages and the SportsFanExpress are offering a hassle-free way to enjoy 49ers' home games and be a part of that ride, sans Bay Area tollbooths, parking lot fees, and the overall headache that game day traffic provides.

As it pertains to 49er fans, Silverado Stages and the SportsFanExpress have created the "49er Bus"(www.49erBus.com), to enhance the experience that fans have on game day, by providing packages that combine game tickets and transportation to Candlestick Park from over 20 Northern California locations (For more information please visit www.49erbus.com/choose_boarding_location).

"We are offering this product as a convenient, luxury way to get to the games so fans don't have to hassle with parking, fees and traffic," SportsFanExpress Marketing and Sales Manager Chris Johns said.

A key benefit of the service includes accelerated entrance and exit to/from the stadium. While others are waiting to enter and exit Candlestick before and after the games, the 49er Bus has its own designated area, allowing for a quicker way to arrive to the game, and most importantly, depart.

If you have ever driven to Candlestick, you know what that last part means.

As a rider, you can purchase an individual round-trip pass to a single game, or you may book an entire seasons' worth. The 49er Bus and SportsFanExpress encourage all riders to purchase their seats online in advance, so that they can receive the best price as well as priority boarding capabilities. Overall, the main selling point of the product is the convenience it provides its riders.

The busses depart from its pick-up locations at various times and arrive at Candlestick at least 45 minutes prior to kickoff. Times do vary depending upon the number of passengers that the busses are assigned to pick up for any particular game.

Being that I myself used this service all of last season, let me say that this product is something that any fan should use. It eliminates nearly every complication that can arise from driving to the games, and perhaps the most important benefit is after the game has concluded. Being able to sit back, relax and not deal with the traffic getting out of the stadium and back home is perhaps the biggest reason I use the service.

"We get a lot of good feedback from the people that use our busses," Johns said. "If you get a full season pass from us, you are set for the whole season regarding transportation."

'A very angry football player': Robert Saleh offers scouting report on 49ers rookie Javon Kinlaw

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh spoke with team reporter Keiana Martin for this week's State of the Franchise event and discussed rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw. Saleh offered up his scouting report of the team's first-round pick. "He's a very large human being," Saleh shared, "very explosive, very powerful, plays with the mindset that we like, a very angry football player. So he possesses the skill set that we look for, especially at the defensive line spot." As a rookie, Kinlaw will be among the players most impacted by an abnormal offseason limited by the COVID-19 pandemic. Players have yet to meet face-to-face with their coaches. Unlike returning players, though, Kinlaw is trying to pick up a new defense, an NFL-sized

Nick Bosa has the potential to be a force along the San Francisco 49ers defensive line for years to come. The young pass rusher was as good as advertised during his first NFL season, a campaign that earned him NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. The 49ers' all-time sack leader, Bryant Young, loves what he sees in Bosa. Young joined KNBR on Thursday to discuss his impending induction into the 49ers Hall of Fame and offered up a scouting report of the second-year defender. "I think his ceiling is very high, just coming in," Young told Greg Papa and John Lund. "And the way he played and carried himself on the edge; great use of hands, good knee bend, he understands angles, very balanced, and he has really good leverage and uses his strength

49ers' Arik Armstead respected Colin Kaepernick for 'putting it all on the line' during protests

By David Bonilla

Just bringing up Colin Kaepernick's name can still evoke strong emotions from different people. That difference was even more evident in 2016 when the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback started kneeling during the national anthem in protest of social injustice. A lot has changed since then. The nation has a better understanding of why Kaepernick was so passionate about the cause. It may have taken four years, and some horrific recent events, but the quarterback's message is finally getting through. More people are beginning to understand what he was trying to do back then to spread awareness, and more are now willing to listen. Kaepernick is still unemployed from football. Although, he remains active in his efforts to bring about awareness of social injustice
