NORFOLK – Hampton Roads Transit (HRT) and the Norfolk Tides today announced a new partnership for all remaining home fireworks nights at Harbor Park in 2023. For all remaining fireworks games of the season, Norfolk Tides fans can show their game ticket for that evening’s game for a free ride on The Tide light rail to and from the stadium. Those games include July 1, July 2 and July 3 this weekend.
“We are thrilled by this new partnership with the Norfolk Tides,” stated William Harrell, CEO & President of Hampton Roads Transit. “The Tide is such a convenient and stress-free way for visitors to get to and from Harbor Park.”
There are several free and convenient park and rides lots at stations along The Tide light rail route including Newtown Rd, Military Highway and Ballentine Blvd. Harbor Park attendees can save on time, gas and parking fees while avoiding the crowds and congestion coming and leaving the park. Parking is also available for game attendees along the light rail downtown at MacArthur Center.
“Working with HRT for Free Rides on the Tide Light Rail for our remaining Fireworks games this season will allow fans more convenient access to Harbor Park. We urge fans to use this free method of transportation to minimize their wait and allow them to enjoy more time at the ballpark.”
