  • Oct. 9
  • Oct. 16

As in years past, Iowa City Transit is not able to serve the areas around Kinnick Stadium or Melrose Avenue on home football games due to road closures and congestion.

The 8 - Oakcrest, 12 - Highway 1, and 10 - West Iowa City detoured football routes will leave the downtown interchange at their regularly scheduled times but will follow a different route and will serve modified stops. These detours will be in effect from 6:30 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Detoured Bus Routes and Schedules

Gameday bus route schedules for the detoured bus routes are available at

Maps of the football detour routes, modified bus stops, and real-time arrival information are located here:
