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 13.

To avoid gameday 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 kickoff, and the last buses leave 45 minutes before kickoff. The stadium drop-off and pick-up location is on "R" Street between North 12th and North 13th streets. Buses return to the lots at the beginning of the fourth quarter. The cost is $5 each way or $10 round-trip, and exact change is required. For route and schedule information, visit or call 402-476-1234.

Reserved, pre-paid parking is available for the spring game at City garages designated with "Park & Go" signs. Park & Go cashiers also sell $10 hangtags that permit all-day parking in downtown metered spaces. Visit 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 congestion 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 or search for "Waze" in your mobile app store.

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