Please see the attached map for more information regarding the shuttle route. The map also includes alternate parking locations that are in proximity to the school.

We are urging all spectators to use the shuttle. The shuttle ride is about 5 minutes and will start approximately an hour prior to kickoff and run until the end of the game.

PlNo Parkingease be advised that there is NO event parking in the Mission Square Shopping Center across the street, north of the school. It is a private lot and if you choose to park there you are at risk of being towed at your own expense.

Our advice is to arrive early and plan accordingly to minimize parking and traffic concerns so you can have the best experience possible.
