New game day shuttle service available around Jordan-Hare Stadium this football season

Auburn Athletics on Thursday announced it is partnering with Slidr to offer a new game day shuttle service throughout the areas adjacent to Jordan-Hare Stadium this football season.

The fare service will take patrons from outside the stadium security barricade boundaries to any location inside that perimeter, including right up to the stadium itself. The service pickup area outside the perimeter runs from the corner of Glenn Avenue and Gay Street west to Byrd Street and south to Woodfield Drive.

The fare will be $3 per person, and service begins three hours prior to kickoff. Shuttle service will be suspended at the end of the first quarter and resume at the start of the fourth quarter, running two to three hours postgame.

Patrons may use the Slidr app on iPhone or Android to order service, or call the local contact number 334-703-4213. Payment can be made by cash or debit/credit card at the drop-off point. No payment can be made through the app.

Each Slidr vehicle is a five-passenger, low-speed vehicle that meets all required safety standards, according to Auburn Athletics. Slidr, based out of Boca Raton, Florida, will be the only provider with access through the game day barricades.

Auburn opens their 2019 home schedule on Saturday against Tulane at 6:30 p.m.
