Shuttle Service

Shuttle buses will run continuous loops from all general parking locations (see Parking and Walking map) surrounding Crisler Center (shown in green) to the northeast and southwest entrance of Crisler. There are no designated shuttle stops. Instead, buses will circle the lots, picking up passengers along the way.

All shuttle buses are wheelchair accessible.

The shuttle service begins at 12:30 p.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. Because the buses make frequent stops for passengers, we suggest you allow extra time to reach the Crisler Center.

Note: shuttles will NOT be picking up guests from the Pioneer High School lot.

Accessible Parking & Drop Off

We encourage guests with mobility concerns to be dropped off at the southwest entrance, nearest the location of parking for persons with accessible needs (state disability permit required).

Graduates or guests who have questions about parking, access, or special needs should call (734) 647-7900 for further information.
