Pilot Shuttle Program Underway From Downtown Garages To Haymarket
LINCOLN -- You'll have a new option to get to the Haymarket or Pinnacle Bank Arena from the downtown parking garages. Star Tran is offering evening shuttles on weekends and for special events. The shuttle is a pilot program to determine the level of interest from the public. Mayor Chris Beutler says the route will make it easy to find a parking spot and the frequent service will ensure shorter waiting times for those waiting to use the shuttle. City officials will talk with business owners and Arena staff to determine whether the service should continue once the new garages are open. The shuttle will operate from 6:45 p.m. to 12:15 a.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights through July 12. The fare is just 25 cents, but those who present a Park and Go ticket or a current bus pass may ride for free. The shuttle will run on a continuous 15-minute schedule.
