Location Information

The shuttle will begin three-and-a-half hours prior to kickoff and run on a continuous loop until two-and-a-half hours before kickoff. The route will run from the Soccer Stadium, past the Pirate Statue and Athletic Ticket Office windows outside Minges Coliseum, and stop near the flag poles on the northwest plaza of Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, and then return to the Soccer Stadium on the same route. Beginning 90 minutes prior to kickoff the shuttle will begin transporting tailgaters from the Soccer Stadium to Scales Fieldhouse and run on a continuous loop until game time.
