UWM Sponsored Transportation

UWM is once again providing free shuttle bus transportation from UWM to the South gates of the Marcus Amphitheatre.

Campus bus pick-up will be at the Panther Street Festival on Hartford Avenue. Shuttle service from UWM begins at 5:30 p.m. Last bus will leave for the grounds at 9:00 p.m.

Park your car at the Union Structure starting at 3:00pm and pay only $2.00 for the night. Come by the Panther Street Festival Early for a wristband for priority seating and bus loading.

Shuttles from the Amphitheatre 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.

Expect to wait in line for a bus both going to the grounds and on the return. The wait for a bus can be as long as two hours. Get in line before 6:30 p.m. to avoid a long wait on your way to the grounds.

There will be an ADA shuttle provided. Please contact the Accessibility Resource Center at sachelp@uwm.edufor more information or to inquire about any other special accommodations.
