StarTran officials say nearly 3,000 fans used the Big Red Express shuttle buses for the first Husker football game Saturday, Aug. 31, a 12 percent increase in ridership over the home opener in 2012. Fans are encouraged to use the convenient Big Red Express for stress-free transportation to and from Nebraska's seven remaining home games.
Big Red Express bus service will begin operating continuous shuttle service two hours prior to kickoff from parking lots at these six locations:
The last buses will leave from the parking lots to the stadium about 45 minutes prior to kick off. Buses will transport passengers back to the lots immediately after the game. The buses unload and load near Memorial Stadium on "R" Street between 12th and 14th streets, and return to the lots immediately after the game.
The cost is $5 each way or $10 round trip, and passengers will need exact change. Big Red Express season tickets for round-trip travel to the remaining seven games are available for $60, a $10 savings. They can be purchased at StarTran, 710 "J" St.; the SouthPointe Pavilions office, 2910 Pine Lake Road, Suite Q; or at the lots on game day.
