BATON ROUGE, La. - As the LSU football team prepares to kick off their first home game of the 2011 season, the Capital Area Transit System (CATS) will once again launch its Touchdown Express service on Saturday, Sept. 10.
"We are pleased to partner with LSU again this year and offer this service to all the fans. On game day, you can take the shuttle and enjoy the game without having to deal with traffic and parking hassles. We have new boarding locations to serve the community. We look forward to seeing our riders from last year and encourage new people to give us a try," said CATS Chief Executive Officer Brian Marshall.
The Touchdown Express is an easy and convenient way for Tiger fans to avoid traffic and on game day and ride comfortably to Tiger Stadium. The service consists of routes that will provide continuous service beginning four hours prior to kickoff and ending one hour after the game ends. The service is only $1.75 each way ($3.50 round trip).
Individuals can park and board the Touchdown Express at the following locations for all LSU home football games:
- Lafayette and Convention (Hotel Indigo and Hilton Hotel)
- Florida Boulevard/I110 Underpass (free parking) - there are approximately 300 parking spots
