JETS To bus fans For Thursday's Football Game


JONESBORO, Ark. – Arkansas State University football fans attending this Thursday (Nov. 8) evening’s game at Liberty Bank Stadium between two Sun Belt Conference (SBC) first-place teams in Arkansas State and Louisiana-Monroe can receive roundtrip transportation courtesy of JETS.

The ASU Athletics Department and the Jonesboro Economic Transit System (J.E.T.S.) have joined together this season to give Red Wolves’ fans an inexpensive and convenient way to attend A-State home football games at Liberty Bank Stadium.

The JETS buses will be transporting those Red Wolves’ fans who elect to park their vehicles in the City of Jonesboro parking lot. The City of Jonesboro parking area is located at the intersection of Cate Avenue and Church Street, across from the old Mercentile Bank/Union Planters Bank building.

Cost to ride the JETS bus each way is $1.25 for adults, 90 cents for A-State Students with a valid student ID and 60 cents for senior citizens age 65 or older.

The JETS buses are scheduled to pick up fans at the designated times of 2:55 p.m. (CT), 3:25, 3:55, 4:25, 4:55 and 5:25 p.m. The JETS buses will then arrive at Liberty Bank Stadium and proceed with letting off fans at the Northwest corner of Liberty Bank Stadium near gate 11.

Following the game, the JETS buses will commence loading fans for arrival to the City of Jonesboro parking lot in about a 10-minute time frame. The JETS buses are scheduled to depart approximately 20 minutes after the ASU football contest has concluded and fans should proceed to the departure area in the Liberty Bank Stadium parking lot near gate 11.

Arkansas State, which is now bowl eligible with a present 6-3 overall record and a first-place tying 4-1 SBC mark this season, will put its current four-game winning streak up against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks this Thursday at 6 p.m. (CT). Tickets for A-State’s upcoming key conference matchup versus Louisiana-Monroe are now on sale and may be purchased by calling the ASU Ticket Office at 870-972-2781 or 1-888-ASU-FANS.
