All Aboard for the Hawkeye Express

[ 0 ] September 21, 2012 |

Memo to Central Michigan fans making their first trip to Kinnick Stadium, home of the Iowa football team:

Take the train.

Drive to the Coralville Mall area, drop off your car (for free), pay the Hawkeye Express conductor $12 for adults (kids 12 and under are free), and let the engineer take you to Saturday’s 11 a.m. game against the Hawkeyes.

The first All-Aboard is at 5 a.m. on Saturday. Return trips start during the fourth quarter and run for 90 minutes after the game’s final horn.

You won’t be alone:

An average of 5,138 fans have taken the train during the first three games, which, if that trend continues, will be a record.

The 2008 average was 3,939 per game, it was 4,297 in 2009, 4,421 in 2010, and 4.592 last season.
