NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — At least 100,000 people are expected to come out each day of the NFL Draft and it's important to be aware of how to move around the downtown area with so many rules and road closures.

If you're planning on taking some type of rideshare service over the weekend you can only be picked up in certain places.

Those official locations are on Broadway Eastbound 5th to 8th, Commerce street eastbound 5th to 4th and Nissan Stadium Lot T on First Avenue between Korean War Memorial Bridge and the Pedestrian Bridge.

Outside of the car there's other restrictions, as well.

No bikes, roller blades, skateboards or electric scooters are allowed. Lyft will have special scooter drop off locations at 16th and Broadway and 6th and Woodland.

Representatives from Lime, Lyft and Gotcha say all the information will be listed on their mobile apps. Bike racks will be available at Public Square Park.

There will be free parking located at Nissan Stadium (lots A,B,C and D), the Main Event Parking lot on James Robertson Parkway, CrossPoint Church. After 5 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and all day Saturday, the State of Tennessee lots No. 16, 28 and 29 -- located off James Robertson Parkway by Rosa Parks Boulevard -- will also be available.
