OUPD is closing South Green Drive in front of the stadium all day. The only APT line impacted is the 4, which will miss the westbound Richland and West Green Drive, West Green Stocker and Central Food Building stops; companion stops eastbound towards the stadium will remain open. Gameday traffic is very heavy on south campus, so all APT buses may experience some delay. Use the free app at athenstransit.org/tracker to check where your bus is and its estimated arrival time.
