December 1, 2014: Avoid the Blitz!
In response to potential safety concerns and anticipated delays
due to game day traffic on Thursday, December 4, ECU Transit will operate some services on modified
schedules to avoid areas near Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. The following changes to
service will be in effect:
- Routes 303 Blue and 306
Gold will not operate.
- Route 610 Minges Park &
Ride will end early with its last trip departing Joyner Library at
- All 800-series Night
Combination routes will operate on their normal schedules.
- Route 850 Pirate Ride
will be reduced to serve only Mendenhall / West End, Christenbury Gym, and
Joyner Library until streets and parking lots closed to traffic reopen.
Stop times will remain unchanged.
- All 900-series Pirate Express
shuttles to the downtown area will operate normally.
- SafeRide will operate on its
normal schedule. However, it will initially be unable to provide service
to College Hill, Minges Park & Ride lots, or Curry Court until streets
and parking lots closed to traffic reopen.
Even with these changes in place, delays are possible due to the volume of traffic on the roads before and after the game. For more information
regarding services operating during this time, please call to
speak with a telecommunicator at 252-328-4724.
