I forgot my badger gear! It’s raining! Help!

Where can I go for breakfast or lunch?

For grab-and-go breakfast–coffee, hot breakfast sammies, oatmeal–stop by The Market, located on the 7th floor of the Wisconsin Building. To sit down for breakfast or brunch, head to The Statehouse, located on the 7th floor of the Wisconsin Building. Or, visit The Boathouse on Level 1 of the Langdon Building for lunch or dinner.

I am checking into the hotel on Friday. Can I purchase my shuttle tickets when I check in?

Hotel guests may use their guest room key cards for the shuttle.

What time do the shuttles start/stop running?

The shuttle begins 2 hours prior to game time. They will run every half hour. The post-game shuttle will run for two hours following the game.

How do I make reservations?

Seating is on a first-come-first-served basis.  Shuttle wristbands can be purchased in person at The Market on the 7th floor of the Wisconsin Building.

Where does the shuttle pick up at The Edgewater?

The shuttle will pick up outside the 7th-floor Market entrance.  You will need your wristband to board the shuttle.

Where does the shuttle drop off/pick up at Camp Randall?

The shuttle will drop off pre-game and pick up post-game on Dayton Street in front of Union South.

I have a large group of friends coming, and we will all be riding the shuttle.

Seating is on a first-come-first-served basis.  If you have a large group that would like to sit together, we recommend taking an earlier shuttle.

We want to get dropped off at Memorial Union, not the stadium. Does your shuttle make any stops on the way to the game?

No, our shuttle is strictly for transportation to the game. If you are a hotel guest, we can arrange alternate transportation.

We are not staying at the hotel. Can we still ride the shuttle?

Yes, of course! The shuttle is open to the public.  Please go to The Market to purchase shuttle wristbands.

We’re going to stay by Camp Randall after the game. Is it possible to buy a one-way ride?

Hotel guests ride the shuttle complimentary, and you are not required to take the return shuttle.

I am bringing my three kids with me; what is the charge for those under 12?

There is no cost for children 12 and under.
