Getting to EAD

We are excited to offer a bike corral to those who would like to avoid the road congestion and ride a bike to the stadium. You can then drop it off with one of our attendants. The bike corral will be located on the northwest side of the stadium. Additionally, shuttles will be available for those arriving from other areas of campus. Visit our website for shuttle route details.
