Penn State To Provide Shuttle From Centre Hall To Beaver Stadium
Penn State announced a free shuttle service to Beaver Stadium for fans parking RVs at the Centre County Grange Fairgrounds in Centre Hall in a press release Friday. The university announced earlier this week fans without a pre-paid RV permit won’t be able to park in gameday lots, and athletics said today advanced RV parking for the Ohio State game is sold out.
Another location fans with RVs can use for overnight or gameday parking is the Grange Fairgrounds, about 12 miles from State College. The cost to park an RV is $30 per night, which includes power and water. A dump site is available for additional cost, and there is no fee to park additional cars.
The shuttle will leave Grange Fairgrounds from Homan Lane (just north of Gate 4) on Saturday every half hour from 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Athletics says the trip to Beaver Stadium will take around 45 minutes for early trips but could last more than an hour for the final shuttles. Each shuttle seats about 40 people, so fans are encouraged to use the earlier shuttles if possible to accommodate everyone. The shuttle will drop off and pick up fans on University Drive, just north of Park Avenue.
After the game, Athletics asks fans to load the buses closest to Park Avenue first to return to the Grange Fairgrounds. The shuttles will leave as soon as other traffic disperses, and the last shuttle returning to the fairgrounds will leave an hour after the game ends or whenever the line of fans ends.
