For football games, the first bus departs 3 hours prior to kick-off and the last bus departs 2 hours prior. We drop off at the Rose Bowl in Lot B with return buses leaving from the same location. Return buses are available at the beginning of the second quarter (buses will leave when full). For baseball games, the first bus departs 1 hour prior to the start of the game.
