Campus safety officials request that campers not block bike lanes and/or sidewalks with their vehicles at any time. Vehicles left unattended or creating a traffic hazard will be cited and/or towed. After unloading, campers must relocate their vehicles to the Black Lot, located south of Alumni Drive across from Commonwealth Stadium, where free parking will be available from Wednesday, Sept. 17, through Saturday, Sept. 20.

Free bus service will be available to transport fans back to the Memorial Coliseum vicinity. Lextran buses serve the Commonwealth Stadium area from 7 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. From 6 p.m. to midnight, the CATS Yellow Night Route will be in service.
