AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -

Parking in downtown Auburn has been a persistent issue and with football season quickly approaching, people are looking for a quick solution to the problem.

"Mathan Holt approached the city and asked about, I guess legally enabling golf cart, essentially a taxi service with a golf cart," said Auburn Director of Public Affairs, David Dorton.

The Auburn City Council passed the low speed ordinance which enables the golf carts to legally be used on the streets.   

"We want to present and enhance our gameday experience for anyone that wants to watch a game in Auburn," said entrepreneur Mathan Holt.

This shuttle service would ideally help with gameday traffic, but Holt has bigger dreams for this project.

 "The next portion, of course, is to use the carts in downtown Auburn year round," Holt said.

There are geographical restrictions on where the golf carts can be driven, and University approval is still needed for the shuttle service to operate on streets that are not owned by the city.

Mathan Holt is still looking for golf cart drivers for his service, if interested please call (334)-329-7425.
