CATS brings back Touchdown Express for LSU gamedays
BATON ROUGE - The Capital Area Transit System's popular gameday transportation service is making a comeback this football season.
CATS announced Wednesday that it would bring back the popular Touchdown Express' service for LSU home games during the 2017 football season. The service was suspended last football season due to the August 2016 flood.
Touchdown Express provides local transit to and from LSU home games starting three hours before the game. The last shuttle leaves campus around an hour after the end of the football game.
“We hope Tiger fans and tigerbait alike will get on board and let CATS safely deliver them to the game,” CATS CEO Bill Deville said.
Online ticket sales will begin at brcats.com on August 14. Tickets are $10 per person round trip. But riders can purchase an entire season pass for all six home games for only $50 before September 9.
Touchdown Express passes can be purchased at the CATS terminal in advance of the game, online beginning August 14 or from CATS staff at the L’Auberge Casino & Hotel and Hotel Indigo pick-up spots the day of the game.
The CATS Touchdown Express picks up and drops off at five locations around Baton Rouge, which are:
- L'Auberge Casino & Hotel
- Interstate 110 Underpass in downtown
- Hotel Indigo
- Hampton Inn Downtown
- Belle of Baton Rouge Casino
