BATON ROUGE - The Capital Area Transit System announced they will not be providing Touchdown Express bus service for the LSU vs. South Carolina game this Saturday.

The game was moved to Baton Rouge Wednesday morning after officials from both universities agreed that hosting the game in Tiger Stadium after historic flooding came to South Carolina, breaching dams and causing at least 16 deaths.

CATS said the decision to not offer the game day service because of a lack of resources required to operate both regular routes and Touchdown Express on such short notice.

"The short notice does not allow CATS the time to properly plan and execute both services. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause Touchdown Express customers,” said CATS CEO Bob Mirabito.
