The Orion Express will run every 15 minutes from 4-7 p.m. and return riders to their destination from 9 p.m. until 1 hour after the event ends. Pick-up and drop-off locations are as follows: 103 Jefferson St. (near The Kaffeeklatsch), Hampton Inn, AC Hotel, Embassy Suites and Springhill Suites. Round-trip tickets are $10 per person; seniors and individuals with disabilities can ride for $5.

The Orion Express is a collaborative effort between the City, Downtown Huntsville, Inc. and The Orion Amphitheater.

“We received positive feedback when we offered the service earlier this month, so we’re hoping more people try it out,” said Quisha Bryant, Director of Huntsville’s Parking & Public Transportation Department. “There’s tremendous value in being able to get to and from The Orion without having to worry about finding a parking spot or waiting in traffic when the show is over.”

How to ride

Tickets can be purchased through the Token Transit app, available for iOS and Android users. New users will need to create an account and then verify their information. Once that’s done, the user should click “Buy Passes” and select “Adult” under the “Rider” section. Users should then click the “Orion Express to Jason Isbell Concert” option to purchase the fare.
