Florida State is no stranger to big games containing crowds of people that must be effectively managed. And with large gatherings, you have to either supply plenty of parking or offer mass transit solutions. Luckily for those attending FSU games, the university has plenty of options for both.
Booster and Student Parking
Boosters will obviously have the parking spots closest to the stadium. However, thanks to this handy guide (pdf link here), everyone who isn’t a donor can have a clear picture of where the best parking options reside.
Avoid Parking and Ride The Shuttle
You know what happens when you drive to the game? You have to drive back. And for those of us who want to enjoy a few beverages while tailgating, it’s much wiser to avoid the whole driving/parking nightmare and just take a shuttle to and from the game.
One of the best options for game day parking is taking FSU’s Spirit Shuttle. It begins moving fans from the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center over to Doak Campell Stadium two hours before kickoff. Arrive early to ensure that you get the first bus.
The best part about the shuttle? It’s only $5 for a round-trip ticket. Check out the schedule here.
Stay Up To Date
Parking and traffic patterns can change on a dime. But, if you’re like most red-blooded Americans, you have either a Facebook or Twitter account. Put those bad boys to use on game day and follow FSU’s Transportation services account for the most up-to-date information.
Another up-to-date addition is FSU’s interactive map that shows bus locations in real time. Below is a sample of the routes, with updated information on football game days.
