Hattiesburg running shuttle for USM football games

HATTIESBURG, MS (AP) - The city of Hattiesburg is trying to make parking easier for people going to University of Southern Mississippi football games.

For the third year in a row, fans can park at Lake Terrace Convention Center and get a free trolley ride to campus.

The city is providing the service. The 2.5-mile shuttle to campus begins two hours before starting time and runs until 30 minutes after kickoff.

The shuttle runs again for an hour after the game ends. Fans who fail to make the trolley then will have to find their own way back to the convention center.
