Valley Transportation Authority light-rail trains pulled up one after another to keep the line of passengers moving but for fans that drove, it was a different story. Brake lights and frustration were common in many parking lots.
“This lot is a little harder to get out of. We used to be over in ‘Blue One’ over there and we were out of there an hour after the game but this lot here a lot of the lines aren’t moving at all—I mean nowhere,” one fan told KCBS.

“It’s not frustrating at all; everything is fantastic.” said another driver. “It was a good game. Unfortunately the 49ers didn’t win.”

“It’s a bit of a problem; it’s something they absolutely have to fix and I think there’s probably going to be a lot of people complaining about it,” he said.
