Parking, Transportation, Lodging & Additional Info
Parking and On-Campus Shuttles
To accommodate the significant increase in traffic expected this Homecoming, and to make parking easier for everyone, we have established parking locations throughout campus and the City of Olivet. Vans and golf carts will be used to provide shuttle service to each of the identified parking locations on a continuous loop all hours that the Festival Grounds is open.
A map of established parking locations, as well as the shuttle route and wait times between each shuttle, will be published by mid-September. Visit us online in the four weeks prior to Homecoming to print the map and make your plans! Accessible transportation for the disabled will also be available on the shuttle route.
We have partnered with Lyft to provide off-campus transportation for those who need a ride to any location in the Olivet, Bellevue, Marshall or Charlotte areas. Two Lyft drivers will be available during Homecoming weekend from 7 p.m. – 12 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 11 and Saturday, Oct. 12. For your convenience, Lyft drivers will be stationed at the Lyft station right outside of the Festival Grounds.
*The Lyft smartphone app is required to utilize the services of the Lyft drivers. We recommend you download the app ahead of time, just in case you need the service.
This service is not affiliated with nor provided by Olivet College. Availability is on a first come, first served basis, and wait times cannot be guaranteed.
