View Full Version : Steelers Post-Game Traffic

Hey everyone, I'm a Jaguar fan who will be visiting in October with my Mom for the Jags-Steelers game. Due to myself being a college student and my mother a teacher, we have to fly back right after the game. Unfortunately, the latest flight out for us is around 7. Considering the game should end around 4:15-4:30, do you think we have enough time to get back to the airport to catch our flight?

Thanks guys, I appreciate the help!

im pretty sure your best bet is to park on the south side by the incline and take the ferry across the river to the stadium.

it sounds like youre cutting it close but it should be doable.

maybe some locals will chime in w/ better advice.

Yeah, I was thinking the ferry might be a good idea. Do you know how often it runs/how long the trip across the river is?

I think you will be fine. Traffic was definitely congested getting through the tunnel to leave town but it shouldn't be too bad.
We flew in for the Cincy game last year which was a 1 pm kickoff. Our flight out was also around 7 and we were fine. We got to the airport around 5:45-6. We did stay to the very end of the game. Even got to check in at the airport with Hines (how in the world he got changed, showered, had whatever team meeting necessary and to the airport that quick I have no idea).
