On Thursday, May 2, and Friday, May 3, Transportation Services will run a 5 a.m. campus shuttle to Gate 6 for those who need to board the 6 a.m. airport shuttle. (Those who plan to catch a 10 a.m. or 3 p.m. airport shuttle on Thursday or Friday will be able to use the existing campus Blue and White routes to get to Kroger Field.
