Visit Jackson & Hank Aaron Sports Academy Offering Shuttle for Saturday's Game
October 9, 2023
Visit Jackson and the Hank Aaron Sports Academy are partnering again to provide gameday parking and shuttle service for the Alabama State homecoming game at Mississippi Veteran's Memorial Stadium (The Vet), Saturday, October 14.
The shuttle will run 11 am until 7 pm. The kickoff is scheduled for 2 pm.
A $20 parking fee (debit and credit cards only) is required to access the free roundtrip shuttle service (times TBA) from Smith-Wills Stadium, located at 1200 Lakeland Drive, Jackson (2.6 miles from The Vet).
Note: payments this week can be made by CASH or using CashApp only.
"We encourage fans to take advantage of this option," said Yolanda Clay-Moore, Visit Jackson's Director of Communications. "Traffic congestion is inevitable, but this is a viable option to mitigate some of the traffic. I had a friend who raved about her experience, saying she'll never drive again if the shuttle is an option. She had a great experience for homecoming."
The shuttle drop-off and pick-up will be near Gate 4-B at The Vet. The first shuttle will depart at (TBA) and the last shuttle will depart The Vet at (TBA). Security is not offered after the last shuttle returns.
Shuttles will run with an escort every 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on traffic throughout the competition, with a short break at the beginning of the third quarter before shuttles start transporting fans back to Smith-Wills.
