Charlottesville trolley detours on Saturday due to UVA football game

charlottesville area transit2Due to UVA’s game against UCLA on Saturday, August 30, Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) will detour the FREE Trolley. Bus stops along Alderman Road, McCormick Road, and portions of Jefferson Park Avenue will not be served. The detour will begin at halftime and last until two hours post game. Kickoff is scheduled for 12:00 PM.

During the detour, the FREE Trolley will follow Jefferson Park Avenue to Emmet Street where it will travel north until it reaches University Avenue. The FREE Trolley will turn right onto University Avenue where it will resume its normal route path.

This detour path will be repeated for all home UVA football games. This includes the 9/6 game against Richmond, the 9/13 game against Louisville, the 9/27 game against Kent State, the 10/04 game against Pittsburgh, the 10/25 game against North Carolina, and the 11/22 game against Miami.

Routes 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 will also experience delays during these times as traffic is expected to be heavy.
