Bus to the ballpark
June 10, 2022
Heading to Charles Schwab Field for this year’s College World Series? Let us do the driving, and check out other great ways to get around the city:
Metro provides an easy, inexpensive way to get downtown. For 25 cents a ride, fans can ride the Stadium Circulator, which runs every 10 minutes. Circulator service will begin on Thursday, June 16 for the Opening Celebration Day from approximately 8 a.m. to 10:45 p.m.
On game days, the circulator will start service 60 minutes before the first game until 60 minutes after the last game of the day. The route makes a loop around The Old Market, a variety of downtown destinations, and Charles Schwab Field.
Local and visiting riders can also take advantage of ORBT, Omaha’s first rapid transit line, serving Omaha from downtown to Westroads Mall. A ride on ORBT costs $1.25 each way. A free park and ride lot is available at the Westroads Transit Center for riders, and the line connects directly with the Stadium Circulator.
Due to CWS traffic and events, Route 13 will be operating a detour in North Downtown. Find detour details here.
Rider Tips and Tricks
- Check out our Rider Guide for tips on using Metro!
- Riders can plan a trip and track their bus using MyRide OMA, Metro’s real-time application, available online, as a mobile app, or via a text message system.
- ORBT only accepts payments through Umo, Metro’s contactless fare payment system. It can be used at ticket vending machines, with a smart card, or with a mobile phone app.
Bikes are another great way to get you to and from the ballpark, a bus stop, or an ORBT Station. Metro buses have bike racks and ORBT buses have onboard bike hangers, and your bike rides free! Racks can accommodate bikes, e-bikes, and Heartland Bikeshare bikes under 55 pounds.
A free bike corral – courtesy of Mode Shift Omaha, Heartland Bike Share, and Bike Walk Nebraska – will be located at 13th & Mike Fahey and available 30 minutes before and after each game.
Check out our Bike + Ride page for tips, and get ready to roll!
There will be designated scooter parking on the corner of 14th & Mike Fahey. Scooters are not allowed on board any Metro vehicles or on bus bike racks. Please be considerate when parking a scooter at or near a bus stop, and make sure the stop is accessible.
