Attention Caniacs!! If you want to arrive in style and with a little more cash in your pocket, take the Pepsi Caniac Coach to the next game. This FREE bus provides convenient service to and from the Carolina Hurricanes games, the NHL All-Star game, and select concerts and other events at the RBC Center.
Word on the streets (and by streets I mean Hurricane fan boards on the internets) is that the bus is pretty cool but sadly empty. This bus has comfortable seats, a TV, and a bathroom– think less R-line and more rock star tour bus. It’s next scheduled run is for the Dec. 18th game against the Anaheim Ducks.
Aside from a stylish ride, the bus provides access to the RBC South VIP entrance usually reserved for players and select staff. Riders can board the bus at several interesections near Pepsi Partner restaurants in the Downtown Raleigh, Glenwood South, and the North Hills area. The buses depart 20 minutes after the game and riders are dropped off at their pickup location.
Sponsored by Pepsi Bottling Ventures, the Carolina Hurricanes and other area businesses, this bus can save you the price of parking and the hassle of dealing with game-related congestion. With the price, the VIP treatment, and the convenience it seems like a pretty sweet deal to us at GoTriangle, but no one here has had the chance to take advantage of it. If you’ve been on the Caniac Coach, we’d love to hear from you! Bonus brownie points if you’ve got pictures.
