Shuttles from the Summerfest grounds back to campus will begin at 9:00pm and will drop students off on Hartford Ave. by the Library. Buses will stop running at midnight.

Students living on South Campus will be dropped off at the Hartford Ave. Location and will be able to pick up a normal shuttle down to their residence hall at their standard locations.

Make the most of your PANTHERFEST experience, and enjoy the Panther Street Festival, starting at 3 pm at the UWM Fountain.  Priority shuttle bus wristbands will be given on a first come – first served basis for those attending.  The shuttles will transport PANTHERFEST attendees both to and from the Summerfest grounds, so bring your Panther Pride, and let us do the driving.  Looking to make this process as smooth and efficient as possible?  Make sure you know what you can and cannot bring, be ready to listed and cooperate with fellow Panthers.
