Federal rules change NFL, college gamedays

AP: Sports fans around the country are facing costlier or longer rides to the game because of a recent federal regulation that restricts the use of public shuttles that people take from train stations or offsite parking to the stadium.

One other element to note, the Tuscaloosa Transit Authority says on its website:“The Tuscaloosa Transit Authority WILL NOT provide transportation to and from the Alabama home football games due to changes in the FTA charter rules. Tuscaloosa Charter Services will be the private charter company that will transport to and from the stadium for the home football games.” Here’s the AP story detailing the federal regulation forcing teams in the NFL and college to change their bus service to sporting events.
