Gameday Traffic and Parking

Game day parking for all lots surrounding Neyland Stadium is reserved for pass holders. Improperly parked vehicles or those found in a restricted area will be towed at the owner's expense. Towed vehicles may be claimed by contacting UT Police at (865) 974-3114.

Numerous KAT buses transport fans to and from the Civic Coliseum, Old City and Market Square area of downtown at a round-trip cost of $6 per person starting three hours before kickoff. Eight buses run from Farragut High School off Campbell Station Road to Neyland Stadium at a round-trip cost of $16 per person starting three hours before kickoff. A free shuttle is available from the Ag Campus.

Due to the Vol Walk and the band march, Volunteer Boulevard from east Andy Holt Avenue to Lake Loudoun Boulevard is closed to vehicular traffic for approximately 30 minutes beginning five minutes before the scheduled start time for the Vol Walk. During that time, Phillip Fulmer Way from east Andy Holt Avenue to Peyton Manning Pass will also be closed to vehicular traffic. Parking permit holders for lots in this area should arrive two hours prior to kickoff in order to avoid traffic and pedestrian congestion.

Three hours before kickoff, Phillip Fulmer Way begins one-way traffic from Cumberland towards Lake Loudon Boulevard.

You can find more information on getting to campus on a football Saturday here.

Traffic patterns on gamedays will remain the same as in previous years. More info here.
