A. Family Weekend Park and Ride Shuttle
For visiting families, parking with shuttle service is available from the Health Sciences campus to the Family Weekend Tailgate and the Football Stadium area. Parking will be at the Health Sciences Campus (GPS Address: 100 Health Science Drive, Greenville, NC). This lot is not for tailgating. Please use it to park only, before attending the ECU football game and/or the Family Weekend Tailgate.
Going to the Family Weekend Tailgate and/or Football Game:
Shuttles will begin departing the Health Sciences lot at 2:45pm. The shuttles will make two stops on their route:
- First, shuttles will drop folks off at the Main Campus Student Center, where the Family Weekend Tailgate has been moved. The Family Weekend Tailgate is still SOLD OUT and tickets will not be sold at the door.
- Second, shuttles will drop folks off at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium on 14th
Then, shuttles will return to the Health Sciences lot and continue this route until 6:00pm, which is the football game kick-off.
Coming back to your cars after the Football game:
Shuttles will pick guests up on 14th Street where you were dropped off beginning at halftime and ending 1 hour after the football game ends. They will make two stops on their route:
- First, shuttle will drop folks off at the Main Campus Student Center.
- Second, they will drop everyone else off at the Health Sciences lot.
The Park & Ride Shuttles will read “FAMILY WEEKEND” across the front. There will be multiple shuttles running on gameday, so it is important that you only use the “FAMILY WEEKEND” buses for the Park & Ride Shuttle.
