Lincoln Welcomes Spring Game Visitors

The City of Lincoln is providing accommodations similar to those offered during the regular Husker football season to fans attending the sold-out Nebraska spring football game April 21.

To avoid game day traffic and parking challenges, officials recommend the following:

The Big Red Express shuttle service will pick up and drop off at two locations:

Big Red Express service begins two hours before kick-off, and the last buses leave 45 minutes before kickoff. Buses return to the lots immediately after the game. Cost is $5 each way or $10 round-trip, and exact change is required. For route and schedule information, visit startran.lincoln.ne.gov or call 402-476-1234.

Reserved, pre-paid parking is available for the spring game at City garages (those with the "Park & Go" signs). Visit parkandgo.org to find locations and rates and to reserve parking. Downtown parking meters are enforced Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The latest information on street closures, construction, traffic jams and crashes is available by using Waze, a free, crowdsourced traffic and navigation application. The State of Nebraska also uses Waze to provide traffic information on State roads. Drivers should focus first on driving safely and designate a passenger to operate online navigation tools whenever possible. To download the free Waze app, visit waze.com/get or search for "Waze" in your mobile app store.

Fans driving to the stadium should plan ahead and keep in mind the following information:
