Parking could be tough, so I’ll also pass along a reminder from the team that overflow parking has been arranged at Wisconsin State Fair Park. Fans may use the 84th Street exit from I-94 where they will be greeted by signage and staff. A $10 fee will cover the vehicle parking and shuttle services are free. Buses, provided by Riteway Bus, will be staged near the U.S. Cellular Gate and will offer service to and from Miller Park before and after the game.
Shuttle services are scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. and will run until approximately 1 1/2 hours after the game. Buses will drop off passengers and pick up after the game on the VA grounds. Fans should follow the path marked “Stadium” which will lead them to the right field gate. Tune to AM 1180 for up to the minute information.
