LAWRENCE — The city of Lawrence invites University of Kansas football fans to park in downtown Lawrence for free and catch a ride to and from Memorial Stadium this football season. Downtown to Memorial Stadium service will be available for all seven home-game Saturdays. Fans can enjoy downtown restaurants and shops before and after the game.

Parking in the New Hampshire Street Parking Garage, 900 block of New Hampshire, and on the lower level and ramps of the Riverfront Parking Garage, 600 block of New Hampshire, will be free for weekend game days.

The service to and from Memorial Stadium is $1 for all passengers. The service will run two hours prior to kickoff and one hour after the game or when no additional post-game passengers are present. Signs on the buses will display #11 Downtown/Football Service.

Bus service will pick up and drop off passengers at only these four stops:

  • On the south side of Ninth Street east of Massachusetts (next to the U.S. Bank building)
  • In front of the Riverfront Parking Garage
  • On the west side of Vermont Street north of Eighth (in front of Douglas County Senior Services)
  • Memorial Stadium
