Gameday Downtown

Where should you park for Baylor University games at McLane Stadium? We’ve made that easy by providing FREE parking downtown and FREE shuttle to McLane Stadium and back downtown. While you’re down here, grab dinner downtown before the game or a celebratory drink after.

The City will run 6 shuttles to accommodate fans.

Catching the Shuttle:

The shuttle picks up at 3rd St. and Franklin Ave., in front of the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce.

The shuttle starts running 3 hours before game time and continues until one hour after the game. There is an 8 to 10 minute turnaround time per vehicle (2.2 mile route to stadium).  Shuttles run before, after and during the game.
