These directions are quite different from the routing you receive from most GPS/maps apps when using MVP Arena as your destination. You may find these directions easier to use as you’ll use fewer side streets and all intersections are controlled by traffic lights. All routes used in these directions are suitable for tall / long vehicles, such as motor coaches.
