(Oct. 10, 2013) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio and the Alamodome released the following information for fans planning to attend the football game between the Roadrunners and Rice University at 3 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 12.

The information below was released by UTSA and the Alamodome with tips for the fans regarding traffic congestion, parking and transportation. The Market Street closure and detour may impede downtown traffic, so allow extra time to arrive at the game.

------------------------------

TRAFFIC
Because of road construction, heavy traffic congestion is anticipated in the Alamodome and Downtown areas. Fans are strongly advised to arrive at least one hour before game time.

>> View a map to help guide you around construction near the Alamodome.

PARKING
All Alamodome parking lots are sold out. Alamodome lots A, B and C will open at 8 a.m. for those who have Alamodome parking lot passes. Please do not enter the lots before 8 a.m. or staff will ask you to vacate your spot and re-enter once the lots are open. Additional parking options are available in private lots or downtown parking garages.

>> For more information on downtown parking, visit the City of San Antonio website.

PARK-AND-RIDE
Beginning at 12:30 p.m., VIA will offer Park-and-Ride buses from four convenient locations:

  • UTSA Main Campus -- parking lots BK1 and BK2 (next to Convocation Center and Rec Center)
  • San Antonio International Airport (enter through Northern Boulevard)
  • Crossroads Park-and-Ride (near Interstate 10 and Loop 410 interchange on northwest side)
  • Madla Transit Center (Interstate 35 South and Cantrell Drive)

The last bus departs to the game at 2:15 p.m. The last returning bus from the Alamodome will leave 45 minutes following the end of the game.

Special event tokens from any VIA location will cost $2.50 one way ($5 round trip). UTSA students can purchase tokens at $1.25 each way ($2.50 round trip).

Additionally, VIA’s Primo route 100 provides service between the UTSA Downtown Campus and the Alamodome from the VIA stop on Buena Vista Street. Additionally, the VIA UTSA Downtown Campus-Alamodome Express provides service from a stop on Buena Vista Street at lot D1. Both services run approximately every 10 minutes. The cost of this route is $1.20 each way with a UTSA student discount rate of 50 percent off.

Parking is available in any unmarked space in UTSA Downtown Campus lots D1, D2, D3 and D4 under Interstate 35.

>> For more information, visit the VIA Info website.

LOT A EGRESS
The new egress plan for fans who have a parking pass for lot A at the Alamodome will be in effect. After the game is over, traffic exiting lot A onto the Interstate 37 frontage road will be directed left toward westbound Cesar Chavez Boulevard or southbound Interstate 37. This new exit route will be in effect for at least two hours following the game.

TICKETS
Tickets can be purchased by calling 210-458-UTSA (8872) or by visiting the UTSA Athletics website. On Saturday, the Alamodome box office will open at noon. Doors will open to the public at 1:30 p.m.

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
