UConn Husky fans have a new way to get to Gampel Pavilion for basketball games: UConn Transportation now offers a free shuttle from Storrs Center to campus for men’s and women’s basketball games.

The Gameday Shuttle will start running 90 minutes before each game, and will run continuously until approximately 90 minutes after each game ends. Fans can catch the shuttle every 20 minutes or so outside the Nash-Zimmer Transportation Center (23 Royce Circle, Storrs), and will be dropped off at the Alumni Bus Stop on Hillside Road on campus.

UConn Transportation will run a second shuttle between F-Lot on the north side of campus and the Werth Family UConn Basketball Champions Center. Find route maps and additional information about both the F-Lot and Storrs Center Gameday Shuttles at uconnhuskies.com under “Fan Zone.”

“I am thrilled that UConn Transportation has agreed to offer free shuttles to our fans during basketball gamedays in Storrs,” said director of athletics David Benedict. “We are always looking for ways to enhance the fan experience, and I’m thankful UConn Nation can take advantage of this option to help alleviate traffic congestion around Gampel.”

“We are very pleased and appreciative that UConn has implemented a shuttle for our Storrs Center visitors to take to Gampel for a basketball game,” says Mansfield Downtown Partnership executive director Cynthia van Zelm. “This is a great service for visitors who want to make a night of it with dinner before or after a game, bringing additional vital traffic to our businesses.”

Parking is available in the Storrs Center garage, which is free for the first two hours and $1 per hour thereafter, with a daily maximum charge of $8.
