SHERMAN, TX -- Beginning this Friday, Sept. 25, TAPS Public Transit and Sherman I.S.D. will partner to provide a free park and ride to the home football games.
Three TAPS buses will run continuously from 6:30 through midway of the first quarter to provide rides to Bearcat Stadium from a variety of locations.
The seven locations and order of pick-up include:
•building formerly La Independencia (Travis)
•American Bank (Washington and Travis)
•Sherman Public Library
•First Baptist Church
•SISD Admin. Bldg
Pick-up and drop-off will cover the home and visitor entrance gates. The buses hold approximately thirty people and plan to arrive every 6-8 minutes at the pickup locations.
The return routes will begin running near the end of the fourth quarter and continue until all are delivered back to their cars.
Sherman I.S.D. Superintendent Dr. Al Hambrick hopes this will provide a service and eliminate cramped parking around the stadium.
“The SISD is grateful to TAPS for this new partnership and hopes this will provide a good community service and eliminate some of the parking issues for stadium games. This service will assist Sherman fans as well as our visitors,” Hambrick said.
