Free Midtown Crossing Shuttle to Alleviate Series Parking Stress

Midtown Crossing will, once again, offer fans the convenience of a free event shuttle during the biggest week in college baseball.

“Park the car here at Midtown Crossing, have a drink or something to eat, and we’ll get you to CenturyLink Center and TD Ameritrade Park Omaha on time — no headaches, no hassles,” said Molly Skold, vice president of marketing and communications, for East Campus Realty, LLC, the Mutual of Omaha subsidiary that owns Midtown Crossing.

Here is the plan:
For the Opening Day Celebration on Friday, June 14, complimentary shuttle service will begin at 12 p.m. The shuttle will run a continuous loop from Midtown Crossing to the CenturyLink Center approximately every 15-30 minutes. Service will end on Friday approximately 60-minutes after the end of the fireworks display.

Starting Saturday, June 15, service will begin two hours before the first game and end 60 minutes after the game’s final out. The shuttle will, again, run a continuous loop from Midtown Crossing to the CenturyLink Center approximately every 15-30 minutes.

Fans are encouraged to park in one of Midtown Crossing’s two garages (first three hours free) and pick up the shuttle from 31st Ave. and Farnam St. near the Metro bus stop. Signage will be in place to direct traffic. There may be delays due to traffic so fans are encouraged to arrive early. (Please note — this specially-designated shuttle will only stop at Midtown Crossing and the CenturyLink Center during the series.)

Midtown Crossing is working with the Metropolitan Entertainment and Convention Authority (MECA) to ensure a smooth shuttle run during the series. MECA has previously endorsed the service as a “creative option” when stadium parking lots are sure to be filled to capacity.
