Butler To Run Parking Shuttle At Ohio State Game

The Butler University Athletic Department will a free parking shuttle for fans attending the Butler-Ohio State men’s basketball game on Saturday, Dec. 12.  The game at Hinkle Fieldhouse, featuring two “Top 25” nationally-ranked teams, is scheduled to start at 12 noon.

Due to the anticipated large crowd, Butler will utilize space at its varsity athletic fields, located just across the waterway canal from Hinkle Fieldhouse, for additional free parking.  Access to the varsity fields is through Rocky Ripple, off of Lester Street.

The shuttle will pick up people at the entrance to the varsity fields complex, just south of the intersection of 52nd Street and Lester in Rocky Ripple.  The shuttle drop-off will be at the northeast corner of the Butler Bowl, near the Butler Apartment Village.  From the drop-off, fans can walk to the front of Hinkle Fieldhouse to enter the game or purchase tickets.

Following the game, fans can meet the shuttle at the Butler Bowl drop-off area for the ride back to the varsity fields complex.  The shuttle service will begin at 10:15 a.m. on Saturday, and conclude one hour after the game ends.

Tickets are still available and can be purchased by visiting the Hinkle Fieldhouse Ticket Office (10 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday through Friday), through TicketMaster.com or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
