AUTZEN STADIUM SHUTTLE SERVICE:
In order to provide fans with the best possible experience at the 2017 Prefontaine Classic, a free shuttle service from the Autzen Stadium parking lot to Hayward Field and return for both Friday's “Joan Benoit Samuelson Night” (May 26) and Saturday's Main Event (May 27). Parking in the area around Hayward Field is extremely limited.

This year's Friday events begin at 7:19 p.m. and will end 9:00 p.m.  The Autzen-Hayward shuttles will begin at 5:15 p.m. and the last return to Autzen Stadium will be at 10:15 p.m.

Saturday's competition begins at 12:30 and concludes with the iconic Bowerman Mile at 2:50 p.m.  Shuttles will run from 10:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

 

BIKE VALET SERVICE:
As was the case at last year’s Prefontaine Classic, event organizers will be offering a free valet service for those who wish to travel to the event by bicycle. The Center for Appropriate Transport will be operating a bicycle valet service on the lawn in front of the University of Oregon William Knight Law Center on 18th St, opposite Hayward Field. The bike valet service will operate for both the Friday night and Saturday sessions, opening two hours before each session begins.
