The Tennessee Titans announced that a deal is in place to continue game day shuttle service with Nashville-based transportation company In Shuttle, which will replace MTA. The service will begin this week for the Titans first preseason game versus the St. Louis Rams on Saturday, August 9 and will continue through the remainder of the season.
“This is great news for Titans fans and for the organization,” said Titans Executive Vice President Don MacLachlan. “There are thousands of fans who use the service and it is important part of our traffic plan for game days. This was a difficult process to undertake in the short amount of time available to us and we appreciate everyone’s patience because the end result is servicing our fans. We want to thank Sen. Lamar Alexander and Mayor Karl Dean, in particular, for helping us explore every option before we concluded that In Shuttle was the best choice for our fans. ”
Earlier this summer, it was announced that MTA (Metro Transit Authority) would be unable to continue their shuttle service because of a new federal regulation that took effect this year. The new regulation requires an open bid process for civic event shuttle services.
The shuttle service program will utilize the same remote parking lots as previous years to bring thousands of fans to LP Field for Titans games. Tickets for the shuttle service can be only be purchased on game days at the remote lots – 10th Circle North (off of Charlotte, across from the TSU Downtown campus) or the state fairground – and will cost $10/per person for a round-trip ticket. Disabled fans will continue to be serviced through this program by utilizing either remote lot. Pick up will begin an hour and half before kickoff (5:30 p.m. this Saturday).
