The Oxford Police Department along with the city of Oxford are reminding citizens and visitors that using the area’s free shuttle services is a great way to avoid traffic during Saturday’s home football game against Kent State Golden Flashes.
The Double Decker buses will run starting at 8 a.m. at no cost from the Square to campus and back before the game, during the game and for two hours after the game ends. Fans may park at FNC Park on Old Sardis Road, the South Oxford Center (old Baptist Hospital) and the Jackson Avenue Center for free shuttle parking and will be transported to campus.
The game will kick-off at 11 a.m.
The JAC shuttle will start at 5 a.m. and other shuttles will start at 6 a.m. ADA shuttles will be available starting at 7 a.m. This service will end one hour after game time.

There is no parking on Chucky Mullins due to construction. Be aware of posted no parking zones, and if you are unsure, call the department to verify. Vehicles will be towed from designated no parking areas at the owner’s expense.
City taxi pick-up and drop-off will be at the intersection of Old Taylor Road and University Avenue. No other locations on the city streets are for pick up and drop off. If traffic is disrupted a ticket will be issued. Uber and Lyft should use the JAC lot and passengers can take the shuttle to campus. Backpacks and track bags are not allowed on shuttles or in the stadium. Ole Miss is still implementing the clear bag policy.
Oxford Police want to remind everyone to put valuables in the trunk and lock your cars.
After the game: be cautious of police officers directing traffic in the road at the intersection of Jackson Ave and Highway 278. Hathorn Road will not be able to exit at Chucky Mullins; you must go to West Jackson Avenue. Old Taylor Road traffic must take Belk Boulevard to South Lamar. Please watch for officers on roadways and pedestrians exiting the game. Fixed routes will continue until traffic is flowing freely.
