Shuttle to transport people downtown Saturday

On Saturday, March 31, the city will provide a free shuttle between KU Memorial Stadium and downtown. The City of Lawrence has announced that Massachusetts Street will be closed to traffic and parking between 6th Street and 11th Street on Saturday.

From 11 a.m. until one hour after the KU men’s basketball game ends, the City will provide a park and ride option from Memorial Stadium - Lot 94, to the bus stop located in the 700 block of Vermont Street. The shuttle will operate continuously during that time.

Regular city bus service will continue to operate at 7th and Vermont. With fewer parking spaces available downtown on Saturday, riding the bus is a good option for accessing downtown businesses without worrying as much about traffic and congestion. Jayhawk fans can leave the driving to someone else and enjoy the festive atmosphere of Massachusetts Street.

Disruptions in service may occur. Some reroutes will be necessary as buses will not cross Massachusetts anywhere except 6th and 11th Streets.
