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."

Why 49ers' Christian McCaffrey is a 'proponent' for reimagined Pro Bowl Games

By David Bonilla
Feb 6

Fan reviews of the new Pro Bowl format, now called the Pro Bowl Games, have been mixed. ABC, ESPN, and the Disney affiliates are likely awaiting final rating numbers before determining if it was a success or otherwise. One San Francisco 49ers player was a fan of the new format, which replaced an actual football game played in past years with skill competitions and capped off the Las Vegas event at Allegiant Stadium with flag football games that featured players without the helmets or pads. The reimagining of the Pro Bowl comes after interest in past games dwindled and to reduce the risk of injuries. That last benefit drew praise from 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey, especially given that his team had just played 19 games, not counting the



Orlovsky defends not having 49ers legend Joe Montana among his top-5 all-time QBs

I want to preface this by stating that I enjoy Dan Orlovsky's breakdowns and often find him insightful. However, the ESPN analyst presented a hot take this week that is sure to attract its share of scrutiny. It even did so among Orlovsky's ESPN colleagues. It's difficult to forget that time David Carr tried, much to the astonishment of his NFL Network colleagues, to explain why Joe Montana wasn't a top-10 quarterback of the Super Bowl era. The analyst was, unsurprisingly, bombarded with criticism for making such a highly-debatable statement. Orlovsky finds himself in a similar situation, throwing out his own version of the take when it comes to his top five



Analyst and former All-Pro O-lineman: "Jimmy Garoppolo is just an injury-prone quarterback"

By David Bonilla

Mike Silver of the San Francisco Chronicle took a stab at defending Kyle Shanahan and his play calling from fans and media who place at least part of the blame for the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback injuries on the shoulders of the head coach. It's a fascinating read. Silver argues that the quarterback woes have more to do with poor luck than Shanahan unnecessarily putting his signal-callers in harm's way. Whether or not you want to accept Silver's stand on the situation is up to you. The topic has created much debate among the fanbase, but it is a discussion for another day. One thing was made clear this week. Jimmy Garoppolo, the
