Alltel Arena Shuttles Scrapped

Alltel Arena in North Little Rock, Ark., has to temporarily scrap shuttle service for its patrons thanks to new federal regulations.

The venue has had an arrangement with the city- and county-owned Central Arkansas Transit since 1999 but is now required to give privately owned shuttle services a chance to provide bus service.

In the meantime, patrons, including the disabled, will not have the option of being dropped off at the arena entrance.

The first event affected by the change was Carrie Underwood’s sold-out May 11th concert.
