COLUMBIA — As part of MU’s Homecoming festivities, imaginary dragons might actually make it harder for people in Columbia to get around.

Well, not exactly. The band Imagine Dragons will headline an outdoor concert Friday on a portion of Rollins Street, between Hitt Street and Missouri Avenue. This area will be closed to traffic. The 107 FastCAT Express, day and evening route Tiger Line shuttles, and 207 and 208 Gold and 209 Black routes will be rerouted.

There will be a total of 11 routes detoured Friday.

Instead of catching a bus at the Rollins stop in front of the MU Student Center, passengers can catch one of these five detoured buses in front of the Mel Carnahan Quadrangle fountain:

  • 107 FastCAT Express to downtown, Stephens College.
  • 401 Tiger Line day route to Hearnes Center parking lot.
  • 406 Tiger Line night route to south loop.
  • 207 Gold to Campus View Apartments.
  • 208 Gold to the Gateway at Columbia apartments.

These two detoured buses can be caught at the intersection of Hitt and Rollins streets:

  • 404 Tiger Line night route to downtown.
  • 405 Tiger Line night route to the Trowbridge parking lot and East Campus.

These four detoured buses can be caught at Virginia Avenue in front of the Gaines/Oldham Black Culture Center:

  • 402 Tiger Line day route to the Trowbridge parking lot.
  • 207 Gold to The Pointe at Rock Quarry Park.
  • 208 Gold to Grindstone Canyon apartments.
  • 209 Black to The Cottages of Columbia.

The 107 FastCAT will offer free rides Friday through Sunday.

On Saturday, from 10 a.m. until two hours after the game, the 107 FastCAT will be the only detoured bus, in an effort to reduce traffic congestion near the stadium. The bus will pick up passengers in front of the Student Center on Rollins Street.

The Farmers Market Shuttle will be delayed until 8:30 a.m. Saturday because of the Homecoming parade.

If passengers have questions or need help making transportation plans, they may call the Columbia Transit customer service line at 874-7282.
