Gameday Xpress Ready for the 2016 Football Season

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA – July 27, 2016 – The Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA), in partnership with 1010 XL, the official radio station of the Jacksonville Jaguars, is pleased to launch the Gameday Xpress with a fresh new look for the 2016 football season. The Gameday Xpress is “Your Direct Connection” to Jacksonville Jaguar games, the Navy-Notre Dame game, Georgia-Florida and the TaxSlayer Bowl.

“JTA’s Gameday Xpress makes game days more enjoyable by providing hassle free trips to sporting events,” said JTA CEO Nathaniel Ford. “We encourage fans to park in one of our five conveniently located parking lots and ride to the game with your fellow fans. You will arrive at the stadium faster and have more time to enjoy the pre-game festivities.”
