TGFS Transportation and Parking

Please choose the lowest impact option available to you when traveling to Russell Field on May 18. We anticipate a wonderful turnout for TGFS and encourage you to consider these helpful transportation tips:

  • If you can walk, please do so! This is the best option for limiting our carbon impact as well as our impact on available parking.

  • If you can't walk, then ride your bike! TAPS will be on site offering safe, complimentary valet bicycle parking.

  • If you can't walk or bike, hop on one of the free shuttles.

  • If you must drive, please carpool.

Vehicle Parking

The following parking areas are available on a first-come basis. Please note that TAPS will not be citing in these areas between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2 p.m. However, parking will likely be limited given the normal student, staff and faculty usage.

TAPS has agreed to lift parking restrictions only in the areas and times outlined above. Please adhere to all posted parking restrictions in all other areas. Further, parking restriction for utility vehicles (Gators, Jacobsons, GEMS) will be in effect at the TGFS event.

Free Shuttles

The shuttle pick-up and drop-off point at TGFS is the Memorial Union Bus Terminal. Shuttles will begin running at 10 a.m. and will run continuously throughout the event, with the last shuttle departing from TGFS at 1:30 p.m. The shuttle that drops you off at the event will be the same route on which you return to your office. Please remember to note the route number you took to arrive at the event.
