The City of Lawrence invites KU football fans to park in Downtown Lawrence for free, then catch a ride to and from Memorial Stadium during this football season. Downtown to Memorial Stadium service will be available for all home games. Fans can enjoy downtown restaurants and shops before and after the game.

Parking in the New Hampshire Parking Garage, the lower level of the Riverfront Parking Garage, and the Vermont Street Parking Garage will be free for weekend game days. These parking garages can be found on the map by visiting

The service to and from Memorial Stadium is $1 for all passengers. Please bring exact fare since the drivers do not make change. The service will run two hours prior to kick-off 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 9th Street west of New Hampshire (next to the 901 Lofts)
• In front of the Riverfront Parking Garage
• On the west side of Vermont Street north of 8th (in front of the Senior Resource Center)

In order to keep bus passengers safe during this time, masks are required to be worn at all times on the bus. Drivers will provide masks for passengers who do not have one.
