What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
We will provide clear information within the Eventbrite ticketing data for each event that identifies where the bus will pick up in that major city.  That location may provide available parking in addition to the use of public transportation, Uber, or other drop-off.

Bus parking at each campus location will also be in the Eventbrite ticketing data for each event and will provide convenient access to the stadium and nearby tailgate locations.  The bus drop-off / pick-up will occur at the same location in the major city and the same location at the college campus.

What is my ticket?
Eventbrite provides the ticketing for all passengers.  Passengers must present their ticket through electronic format or in print.  Identification will be required to confirm the passenger is the named ticket holder.

Are seats assigned?
No, so no need to worry about buying tickets together to ensure you sit together.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to use Tailgate Transport?
Must be 21, with valid ID shown to board bus.
