  2. 2. • Ability to handle crowds 25% to 30% larger • Clear congested area in 2 hours – Give “leavers” a route out of town; return to normal peak operation as soon as possible • Substantially reduce intense congestion • Better and more timely information (and static maps and lists if no bandwidth connection) • Increase awareness of BCS dining, hotel and entertainment options What Have We Accomplished?
  3. 3. • Traffic and bus routing changes • Better signalization and contraflow lanes • Safer pedestrian paths • Shuttle bus routes • Pre-pay parking; more efficient entry • Smartphone app Key Message: Know Your Options! How Will That Happen?

  11. 11. What Will It Take For Buses? • Fans riding – 8,000 from off-campus, 10,000+ from parking lots – 35,000 capacity for 2014 (21K total rides Bama ’13) – Auburn & Penn State ~ 20K to 25K rides total • Relies on ‘mostly bus’ lanes and traffic control officers to improve productivity • Entire fleet will be used (buses are old, operations will be difficult, but achievable) • Getting bids for 10 charter buses to accommodate more riders
  12. 12. What Will It Take For Parking? • Use available campus parking spaces; Same percentage will park off-campus as in 2013 • Need: All-weather parking – gravel for 2014 to 2018 – Three lots – approx $1.2 million (~2,700 spaces) • Longer term – more….. – Garages, Shuttle buses, Premier RV park
  13. 13. What Will It Take For Pedestrians? • Coordinated with parking and traffic flow system – enhancing the gameday experience • Need: Wellborn underpass improvements – improve safety and make West Campus Garage an asset – Pedestrian fence and path - $75,000 • Wayfinding signs in North End Zone area
  14. 14. What Will It Take For Streets? Needs: • Wellborn Rd - overhead signs? electronic system? – 2014 cost sharing (TAMU-CS) for operations • Signal system and real-time communication improvements: CS - $3M; Bryan - $250,000+ • Connections to East Kyle Command Center • Possible: – 3rd southbound FM 2818 lane? ~$1 M – Kimbrough pedestrian underpass? ~$1M to $2M
  15. 15. • Pedestrian Safety is Job #1 • Less Congestion is Job #1A • “Know your options” – Websites, smartphone app and mailings (plan ahead!) • Return to normal operation soon • Improve the game weekend experience • Monitor and evolve during season “We can’t be better if we do the same” Summary
  16. 16. • Added lanes on Wellborn Rd – Also improves West Campus Garage and South of Kyle traffic • Improved signal timing – Address bottleneck points – More green time for outbound; Some turns not allowed – Shorter cycles, phases & more efficient green time • Use green time into Bryan • Suggested paths to restaurants, hotels, etc. • Blue – pedestrians; Green – cars; Pink – off-peak traffic Yellow – buses Exit Corridor Plans
