Shuttle Bus to Select Performances at Fine Arts Theatre

A shuttle bus for select UGA Presents performances at the Fine Arts Theatre from the Performing Arts Center. The shuttle bus is a complimentary service for anyone with limited mobility who may have difficulty walking from the Hull Street or Tate Center parking decks to the Fine Arts Theatre and/or those who wish to avoid being out on the sidewalks after dark.

The shuttle bus is a free service for any ticket holder. Seating is based on availability, and advance reservations are required. To secure a spot, please contact the Performing Arts Center Box Office. Reservations must be made before 4:00 p.m. three business days prior to the performance. 

The shuttle bus will make two departures from the drop off zone near the lobby entrance of the Performing Arts Center. The first shuttle bus will depart at 6:45 p.m. A second trip will depart as soon as the bus returns to the Performing Arts Center (approximately 7:15 p.m., depending on traffic conditions at the time).

The shuttle bus will stop on Baldwin Street directly across from the front entrance of the Fine Arts Building. Following the performance, the shuttle bus will depart the Fine Arts Building from the same location and return directly to the Performing Arts Center. Companions will be allowed to ride the shuttle bus, but due to the limited capacity, priority will be given to those who require it.
