The city of Lawrence and Kansas University’s transit systems again will offer a shuttle service between downtown and Memorial Stadium on all KU home football dates.

The shuttle service will depart from both the New Hampshire Street parking garage in the 900 block of New Hampshire Street and from the bus cutout lane near the Riverfront parking garage at Sixth and New Hampshire streets. The fee to ride the shuttles is $1.

The service will begin running two hours before kickoff and for about one hour after the game.

Good thing Gill is coach. It they were any good, Lawrence would really be crowded with cars.

Didn't they do this last year as well? Downtown still seems to be holding up.

There are actually people in this town who don't live and breathe KU athletics. Shocking, I know!

Oh great, so the football fans fill up downtown with their cars and then get shuttled off to a game. Meanwhile, the people who might actually spend some time and money downtown can't find a place to park so they just go home. Brilliant, guys, brilliant.

Or another way the system can be put to a good use by taking lots of riders to and from the stadium and downtown.

Another way to justify and to gain ridership for the failed empT system.

Like there's enough parking in downtown Lawrence to handle game day parking plus regular shoppers and those trying to avoid the game day traffic??
