LAFAYETTE, Ind (WLFI) — City Bus is offering free rides to and from Purdue's homecoming football game Saturday.
The bus will run from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Riders can use the game day connector route in downtown Lafayette.
Pick up is located on the northwest corner of 2nd and Columbia and travels to 3rd and Russell.
That drop-off location is half a mile or five blocks away from Ross-Ade Stadium.
City Bus says it offers free rides every home football game to help get the word out about the company.
"It's just a good way for us to get our name out there and introduce people to public transit who may not use it on a regular basis, said the manager of development at City Bus Bryce Gibson. "The ride is free so you don't have to worry about buying a fare or losing a fare card. You just hop on the bus in downtown Lafayette right over to the game and don't have to worry about traffic."
City Bus says the free rides will run every 20 minutes and you can use its app to see its location in real time.
If you do decide to drive, most street parking is free and the Columbia Street Parking Garage is free as well.
