Shuttles, Parking & Tailgating


Many fans like to walk from the University of Oregon campus and Franklin Blvd area. While there are many ways to approach Autzen Stadium through Alton Baker Park, the most popular route is where Agate St and Franklin Blvd intersect at Riverfront Prkwy. Cross over the Autzen pedestrian/bike bridge and follow the crowd!

Autzen Express shuttle service is offered by a private carrier called First Student, picking up riders from four Eugene-Springfield locations: Lane Events Center (13th & Jackson in the north parking lot); Valley River Center (northwest parking lot); Pacific Source (555 International Way in Springfield) and Springfield Station (355 South A St, Springfield). Service begins three hours prior to kick off and continues departures every 10 to 20 minutes. Return trips are only offered at half time and for one hour after the game. Shuttle tickets are $5 and must be purchased here in advance. 

You can also ride Lane District Transit (LTD) buses from a park and ride location to the Agate Station, cross Franklin Blvd and follow the walk over Frohnmayer Bridge to the stadium. Please note: LTD is not operating game day shuttles for 2022. All bus services will run on their regular routes and schedules.

Ride a Bike 

Rent a PeaceHealth Ride bike share and ride it to Autzen Stadium. On game days the designated riding area will be expanded to include the stadium. Bike racks will be at Autzen's north and south entrances. Or if you prefer, ride part way and park your bike at the existing PeaceHealth Ride hub south of the river and walk the remaining way. The heavy pedestrian traffic on game days can make riding a bike more difficult, especially over bridges. If you do decide to ride, please give pedestrians the right-of-way and walk your bike through the congested areas.

Make it even easier on yourself and rent an electric bicycle! Secured bicycle parking will also be available in the "Duck Pen" for $1 per bicycle, located between the Eugene Science Center and the Autzen Footbridge. The Duck Pen opens three hours prior to kick off and closes one hour after the game.

Pedicab Rides

Jump in a pedicab and enjoy a ride to Autzen! Emerald City Pedicab will be offering services along the foot path to Autzen Stadium.


Autzen Stadium's parking lot opens four hours before kick off and requires reserved parking passes provided exclusively to Duck Athletic Fund members. For large groups, contact Hospitality Services at 541.346.4475. All other season and single ticket holders can purchase advance parking passes at the adjacent Eugene Science Center. Boy Scout Troop 100 offers more parking access at lots along Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, both reserved and first-come, first serve spaces. The Masonic Lodge (541.344.9413) also sells tailgating spots across from Autzen.

Game Day Tailgating

A great indoor venue for pre-game entertainment is in the Ed Moshofsky Sports Center connected to Autzen. The "Mo" is filled with many small TVs, food booths, beverage stations and plenty of tables. 

An easy, fun tailgating option that doesn't require a ticket to the game is at Essig Field, directly across from Autzen Stadium. Open six hours prior to kick off, this free outdoor venue provides a food court by McKenzie Catering, tented areas with tables and chairs and televised coverage of the game. Enjoy the beer garden offering domestic beers and local craft beers including McKenzie Brewing, Hop Valley and Ninkasi Brewing. The venue is family-friendly and so convenient you may chose to watch the whole game from here on their TVs. Private parties may also be arranged.

If you aren't attending a pre-game function with catering and food booths, rent an RV or work with a tailgate company like TailgatePal for a fun set up. Shop for tailgate supplies at local markets. There are many area restaurants that provide game day catering, including Cafe Yumm and Hole in the Wall BBQ. Fill up your cooler with local craft beer at a bottleshop or growler fill station. Please do not take open containers of alcohol onto public streets or sidewalks— it is against the law— or bring it into the stadium.

The Cooler Restaurant & Bar is the closest sports bar to Autzen Stadium north of the Willamette River. It is about a one mile walk to Autzen. McMenamins North Bank or restaurants at Oakway Center are also nearby. Along Franklin Blvd, south of the Willamette River, join fans at the bar in Hayward Inn, at Track Town Pizza or at the Wild Goat sports bar before or after the game.

The Market District and downtown Eugene are also nearby. The 6th Street Restaurant & Sports Bar in downtown Eugene is also a popular pre and post-game hang out. And Sam's Place Tavern off West 11th offers shuttle service to the stadium.
