Wearing green gives fans a free ticket to ride

Football spiritMean Green fans have another reason to wear their green. Spectators wearing UNT colors or apparel will get a free ride from the Denton Country Transportation Authority for the Sept. 14 football game against Ball State University.

The UNT Athletic Department and the DCTA are partnering for the “Get Your Green On” promotion in which fans can ride free on the A-Train and a special shuttle from downtown to the base of the highway pedestrian bridge by Fouts Field.

This service will run from 11:30 a.m. until the 3 p.m. kickoff, with return service to downtown and the A-train station provided following the game until about 7:30 p.m.

“We really appreciate DCTA and UNT Parking and Transporation working with us on this partnership,” Athletics Director Rick Villarreal said. “It’s the first time we have tried it, and we hope to build on the idea in advance of the Nov. 9 Homecoming game when we may offer it again.”

The A-train will offer regularly scheduled service between 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday. DCTA will offer shuttle buses from the Downtown Denton Transit Center to the stadium every 15 minutes between 11:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. 

The 7 and 8 bus routes also provide transit connections to the stadium. 

Shuttle services also will serve the businesses in downtown before and after the game. Transit service will be available between the square and the Downtown Denton Transit Center until 10 p.m. with the last southbound A-train leaving at 11:15 p.m.

“If you have not been to a UNT game at Apogee yet, and maybe haven’t been to our downtown area in recent years, what a great way to see all the positive changes,” Villarreal said.

“UNT and DCTA have always had a great partnership, and this game-day shuttle is another example of that partnership,” DCTA president Jim Cline said. “The transit connections to the stadium, accented by the activity and offerings in downtown Denton, are great reason for alumni and Mean Green fans throughout the area to take the A-train and enjoy the day in Denton.”
