I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
Semi OT: Michigan gameday parking (sort of special circumstance question)
On Potter Street just across from the stadium. Shortest walk, and help the locals.
Get there very early if you want to be as close to the stadium as possible, on the lawn between the RV lot and Stadium.
I'm not sure of the prices, but you could try the commuter lots at the tennis complex off of State. They will,in all likelihood, have shuttles to and from the stadium. I have to imagine the prices would be around or just under $20.
Hope that helps.
Appreciate the feedback guys...
Didn't even think about taking one of the shuttles... Could be a good option if I can't get there early enough.
On Hoover Street, as the name indicates. (Although, Birmingham Chrysler was located in Troy, so you never know.) The owner's name is Brian. (734) 913-6272. We've been parking there for years. The store is always open so you even have access to a restroom.
If you're worried about saving a spot or having where you want to park be full - I'd hold a spot for you at my house up until game time if you want - it's a couple hundred feet from Pioneer.
Seriously? You would do that? That would be completely awesome of you!
Try the neighborhood on Berkley Ave. There are a ton of residential spaces available, just 150 yards or so, from the Big House. At my place, we used to offer individual parking, but we're moving to a whole package deal for event groups. We have several neighbors who are looking for season-long parkers. Contact me through Facebook (MGoPatio) and I'll see if I can set you up with one of our neighbors.
...if you're still looking.
Thanks buddy... I will let you know!
It sounds like you have a spot, but if you're interested "there is an app for that." The GameDay Parking - Ann Arbor App for iPhone (see www.gamedayparkingapps.com) shows all unreserved parking in town for football game days, and you can sort locations by price and by distance to the stadium. After you select a spot, it gives the user turn-by-turn directions to the parking spot.
Again, it sounds like you're taken care of, but if you want to watch the Maize and Blue in Ann Arbor, South Bend (Notre Dame) on Sept 22, or West Lafayette (Purdue) on Oct 6, give it a try.
Didn't know the app existed... Thanks for that, will be useful For soapy other things! Thank you
I've got a spot for you at 4th and Packard of you need it. Let me know.
Man I love this community sometimes.
I also could point you to a couple of MGoSponsors. MGoPatio you know. Also you might want to look up Park 'n Party, who will be a September sponsor. They broker parking spots and you can search by game and distance, or call them and explain your situation and they can hook you up. This is a good way to get some tailgating in and not be 100 miles from the stadium after.
A really good option if you're not going to be taking in pre-game festivities is drop-off. You can use the same premium entrance the box seat users use, in the back of the stadium near Crisler.
The stadium also has a shuttle from all of its official parking lots for people with disabilities, or crutches, or can fake it.
Just an FYI... I never actually heard back from anyone... Thanks mgopatio for passing my info along even if nobody did get ahold of me.
