This parking deck has over 400 spaces and is located on 7th St. between 23rd and 21st Avenue, just behind City Hall, between University Blvd and Bryant Dr. There are many restaurant and shopping options in the areas surrounding the parking deck. Tuscaloosa Transit will be running 16 buses from this location, starting 3 hours prior to game time. The cost to ride the bus (per trip):
- Adults: $1

The University of Alabama provides a limited number of parking spaces for people with disabilities. For people who use a wheelchair, accessible parking is located at the lot on Wallace Wade Ave. (#1 on the www.uagameday.com pregame parking map), the Communications Card Lot (#2 on the www.uagameday.com pregame parking map) and the new wheelchair accessible parking lot located on the Southside of the Stadium at Calvary Baptist Church (#3 on the www.uagameday.com pregame parking map). All of these lots have been sold out.
All other parking for people with disabilities is located at the Campus Drive Deck (Campus Drive at Hackberry Lane). We are pleased that we will be able to offer more services at this location and more parking space is available to accommodate the fans. This deck serves at the hub for the Crimson Ride transit system. Restroom facilities are conveniently located in the Campus Drive Deck. Crimson Ride buses will transport fans from this location to the Quad for the festivities there.
Bus transportation will begin running shuttles at the following times to the following locations:
- To The Quad - 7 a.m. on Gameday
- To Bryant-Denny Stadium - 3 hours prior to kickoff
Parking is $30 per vehicle and will be collected at the lot. For post-game shuttle, all buses leaving the stadium for the Campus Drive Deck will board on the west side of the stadium on Wallace Wade Drive. Buses will be a combination of small school buses and Crimson Ride buses. Post game, fans who want to go to the Campus Drive Deck via a bus should go to the west side of the stadium, across Wallace Wade, and board the buses in that location only. These buses will begin running at the end of the third quarter and will continue to run one hour post game. For more information about services for people with disabilities click here.
