JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA – October 28, 2013 – Are you a fan heading to the annual Florida vs. Georgia game on November 2, 2013 held at EverBank Field?  If so, why not take the Jacksonville Transportation Authority’s (JTA) Stadium Shuttle Service (SSS) rather than drive!


“Fall is in the air and that means the Florida vs. Georgia weekend is finally upon us.  The JTA’s Stadium Shuttle Service is staffed and ready to go for all the gameday fans utilizing the service,” said JTA’s Chief Executive Officer Nathaniel P. Ford, Sr.  “We strive to provide each rider with the opportunity to focus more on the big game and less on the obstacles of traffic and parking.”

Parking is complimentary in one of our convenient lots for customers boarding the shuttle for a direct trip to the stadium.  JTA will offer park-n-ride service from the following locations throughout the city:

In addition to these locations, JTA will also offer shuttle-only service from the Jacksonville Landing (load on Hogan Street between Water and Bay) to the stadium.  The cost is $7.  All Stadium Shuttle Service will begin at 11:30 a.m. and continue until one hour after the game. 

The Skyway will also be operational from 9 a.m. until midnight game day (Saturday).

The JTA offers continual shuttle service throughout the duration of the games from the Convention Center Lot only.  To purchase your SSS tickets today, please visit www.jtafla.com or call (904) 630-3100.  You can also purchase your tickets at each of the locations on the day of the game, using exact change only.  Remember to be safe and ride the shuttle!
