COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Experts at Texas A&M; have created a smartphone app to help with game day traffic at Kyle Field where upgrades will increase seating to more than 106,000.

A&M; officials on Tuesday unveiled the free app, called Destination Aggieland, during an update on $450 million in stadium renovations. Kyle Field has added about 20,000 seats since last season.

Chancellor John Sharp says the Texas A&M; Transportation Institute’s Kyle Field plan, which includes the app, is another way to improve the overall game day experience.

The plan also includes changing traffic and shuttle-bus routes, improving the timing of traffic signals, creating more defined and safer pedestrian paths and providing more efficient prepaid parking options.

The Aggies on Sept. 6 host Lamar.
