Gov. John Bel Edwards announced the Louisiana Economic Development grant during an event Friday that celebrated Waitr’s new downtown headquarters.
Bus routes from Cajun Field to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette campus will begin in front of M.L. “Tigue” Moore Field at Russo Park starting Monday, the first day of the fall semester.
The move, from an area near the northwest corner of the football stadium, is designed to reduce parking congestion associated with Cajundome events.
A covered waiting area also is being planned by Moore Field. Bus riders should park at Cajun Field near Bertrand Drive instead of Cajundome Boulevard. They are encouraged to enter the Cajun Field parking lot from Bertrand and Reinhardt drives and West Congress Street, rather than Cajundome Boulevard.
Representatives from the University’s Office of Transportation Services will help direct traffic inside the lot and answer questions. Signage will direct students.
Stops at Bourgeois Hall and on Rex Street remain the same.
Regular University bus hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Thursday; 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday; and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
The UL Lafayette mobile app provides live information on bus locations and gives estimated times of arrival to each of the UL at Lafayette bus stops.
The app also features alerts about changes in lots, upcoming events that will affect parking and other important notifications.
It can be downloaded from the iOS or Android app stores.
The same features are available online at – ulgeauxride.com
