Take the Blue Line to Football Games
There is no reason for students to hassle with parking and traffic on game day when the Tigers play football at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.
The Blue Line Shuttle runs from the Central Avenue parking lot on the University of Memphis campus two hours prior to game time and runs continuously until kickoff. Shuttles return to the Central Lot at halftime and immediately following the game. Shuttles returning riders to the Central Lot are available up until an hour after the conclusion of each home game.
Shuttles are free and open to anyone with a Memphis ID or someone traveling with a person with a valid UofM ID.
Until a half hour prior to kickoff, drop off is at Tiger Lane, then moves to Gate 6 (student gate off Hollywood). When headed back to campus, students can catch The Blue Line on Hollywood outside of Gate 6.
