Two Drake buses will provide shuttle services from parking areas to The Knapp Center. Buses will run a loop starting at the corner of 25th Street and Forest Avenue, down 25th Street to University Avenue, where it will go through parking lots on the south side of Unviersity. The bus will then go west into Lot 16 (Olmsted Center Lot), then on to 31st Street where it will travel north to Forest Avenue. Buses will pick anyone up along Forest at any corner.
