The City of Ottawa and the REDBLACKS are urging fans who are coming to games at TD Place to leave their cars at home.

There will be parking restrictions on Bank Street, O'Connor and Fifth Avenue. The city says parking regulations in all areas of the Glebe will be strictly enforced on game night.

Ticket holders can ride OC Transpo for free, and free shuttles are running from Carleton University, the RA Centre, Canada Post, and Vincent Massey Park. Free bicycle parking is available at Lansdowne.

The city is warning residents of the Glebe that if they try to rent-out their driveways as parking spaces they could face a fine of up to $5,000.00.

The home opener is a test run for the city. It says the game plan may need to be modified moving forward.
