As part of our on-going commitment to transparency and communication, it was important we reached out to you today. We acknowledge the post-game traffic delays and apologize for the inconvenience that many fans experienced Saturday night. We strive to have the best gameday experience in sports, and we let you, our customers, down on an important part of the experience.
The first step in fixing the issue is to diagnose the cause. We overcorrected a problem after the SEMO game resulting in Old Taylor Road and Hill Drive being reduced to one lane exiting campus. From here forward, we will use all possible lanes for exiting traffic.
To accommodate fans using shuttles, near the end of the game, we will stage all possible shuttles at their appropriate, clearly marked locations to transport fans to off-campus lots as efficiently as possible. Please note the time between the first wave of shuttles and subsequent waves will be dependent on how quickly the shuttles can arrive back on campus using dedicated shuttle lanes on Gertrude Ford Parkway.
We thank the Ole Miss family for their continued support of Rebel football as we strive to deliver the best gameday experience. We are committed to open communication, and your feedback is vital. Please continue to use rebs.ms/VHSFeedback to let us know about your experience. We will publish additional details about lines at gates, concessions and other relevant gameday items later this week.
