The National Football League (NFL) has kicked off training camp, and the Regional Transportation Authority of Middle Tennessee (RTA) is kicking off ticket sales for the upcoming football season.
Tickets for the Game-Day Express, the RTA’s Music City Star service to Riverfront Station for Tennessee’s NFL home games, are now on sale online for the 2013 season.
For the third straight year, customers can receive a 20 percent savings on Game-Day Express tickets if they purchase single-game tickets online between Aug. 1 and Sept. 10. During this time, tickets are available online for $12 instead of the regular $15 advance purchase price. Cost is $20 on the train on game day.
Season Passes also are available online through Sept. 10 for $90. In addition, the RTA is offering a Friends/Family Pass, which is good for up to four people per game and costs $300.
The Game-Day Express train travels to all regular season home games, beginning with the Sept. 22 game against the San Diego Chargers.
