Several options on how to get to the U of A football game

TUCSON- U of A fans are pumped football season starts Friday, with thousands of fans heading to Arizona Stadium for the game.

If you're not a lucky one who finds parking close to the stadium, fans are looking at the other options to park and get the game.

One option is the Sun Link streetcar.

Riders can get on along 4th Avenue or downtown and take that to 2nd Avenue between Cherry and Warren, just a couple blocks from the game.

Some residents living near the streetcar are concerned about parking situation, with some of the streets only requiring a parking permit from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Some business are also worried about customer parking.

"I know it will impact customer parking," Joy Soler, owner of Revolutionary Grounds Books and Coffee said. "I think it is great people are going to take the trolly, but I know having folks park here for a long period of time without visiting the stores impacts us."

This year, there is no Sun Tran shuttle to the U of A games, something that die hard Wildcat fan Paul Schultz has used for the last four years. He would take it from Hi Corbett to the stadium.

Now he's looking at other options like the Cat Tran

Rider of the Cat Tran can park in the Park Avenue garage at Speedway and Park Ave and hop on.

It will take to you the south end of 6th Avenue near the stadium.
