KU Mens Basketball deviation
November 21, 2014

KU Men's Basketball Games:

On KU Men’s Basketball game nights, campus has limited accessibility to allow for arena flow. The JO will serve the Park and Ride lot, but not campus. When there is a KU basketball game, please ride the KU Park & Ride bus to the campus park and ride lot on the West Campus. The JO will stop campus service 1 hour before game time, For example, if the game starts near 7:00 p.m., the bus leaving the KU-Lawrence Park & Ride at 6:00 p.m will not travel to campus. The other west Lawrence alternative is to wave down The JO bus driver at the T bus shelter in front of Dillon's at 23rd Street & Naismith.

  • Tue, Nov. 11
