“San Antonio is rallying for the Roadrunners as they prepare for the big game on Friday. Let’s #PackTheDome and show them how much we support them during their biggest battle of the season!” Mayor Ron Nirenberg said.

City officials advise fans to plan to arrive downtown early for the game and be prepared for heavy traffic. Those choosing to attend can also take advantage of the VIA Park & Ride to and from the Crossroads location (151 Crossroads Blvd., 78201).

The cost for the bus service, which begins at 4:30 p.m., is $1.30 each way, with discounts for students and seniors.
