To help those attending the UNL spring football game Saturday, the parking section of the City Public Works and Utilities Department is offering $5 pre-paid parking at four of its parking facilities:

  • Que Place Garage, 1111 Q Street
  • Market Place Garage, 935 Q Street
  • Haymarket Garage, 840 Q Street
  • Iron Horse Parking Lot (surface lot), 201 N. 7th Street

The option to pre-pay through the City web site is available for the spring game at lincoln.ne.gov.

All other City parking facilities will be open, and normal parking rates will apply. Attendants at the three garages offering pre-paid parking will have information about on-line parking reservations, season parking passes, parking locations and other information for the 2005 Husker football season. Maps and other parking information are available at lincoln.ne.gov, parkitdowntown.org or by calling the parking office at 402-441-6472.

University officials expect 60,000 people to attend the spring game, which starts at 12:30 p.m. at Memorial Stadium. Stadium Drive will close at 7 a.m., and the Husker Pavilion will open on that street at 9:30 a.m. The stadium will open at 11 a.m. for general admission seating.

StarTran will offer its Big Red Express service from two locations:

  • Home Depot, 27th and Cornhusker

Buses will run from 10:30 a.m. to noon from these locations to the stadium. They will leave from the east side of the stadium immediately following the game. The cost is $3 each way for adults and $1 each way for children age 12 and under.
