$5 Game Day/Event Parking and Free Razorback Shuttle To/From Dickson Street
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— Football fans are invited to park in the City’s Spring Street Deck for $5 and then hop on a FREE University of Arkansas shuttle to/from the stadium.
The Razorbacks will be taking on top-ranked Alabama this Saturday. Drivers can enter the Spring Street Municipal Parking Deck beginning at 8 a.m. for a flat fee of $5.00 (cash only) on Saturday, October 6. This rate ensures parking through 2 p.m. on Sunday.
Event parking for the Walton Arts Center’s matinee and evening performances of Jersey Boys will also be taking place in the West Avenue parking lot and Spring Street Parking Deck for the same $5 rate during this time. Fans utilizing the shuttle service should use the vehicle entrance located on N. School Avenue of the Spring Street Deck, between Dickson and Spring streets.
In addition to the event parking venues on the West Avenue lot and the Spring Street Deck, more than 1,400 public parking spaces are available throughout the Dickson Street Entertainment District at both hourly and daily rates.
Fans can hop on a University shuttle and ride for free to and from the game. A shuttle stop is located one block north of the parking deck on Dickson Street between West Avenue and School Avenue. Shuttles will stop in the passenger loading zone on the north side of the Walton Arts Center and drop off near Gate 1 of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. After the game, passengers can board the shuttle at the Gate 1 location and return to Dickson Street. Shuttle service begins at 7 a.m. and will end when the stadium is cleared – approximately one (1) hour after the game ends. In the event the stadium is cleared prior to the estimated time, shuttle service will end to allow normal traffic conditions to resume as quickly as possible. The University’s shuttle ride may take 20 minutes or more, depending on traffic volume. Wait times increase during the two hours prior to kick-off. Anyone may access the University’s game day shuttle buses for free. Information about game day shuttle service can be viewed online and a route map can be downloaded here.
The University of Arkansas encourages people to check out Football Game Day Fan Information online or download the Fan Guide and review the bag policy, permitted/prohibited items, and pre/post game traffic flow.
