In addition to bike valet, we are recommending that people consider arriving by bus as there is very limited parking in these historic neighborhoods. Please note: Saturday and Sunday service will have different schedules. All times are approximate. We recommend using Google Maps for plotting a more precise plan from your specific location.

From North Omaha Transit Center (NOTC)on 30th Street, one block south of Ames, we recommend using Route 3. Saturday the route is every 30 minutes, leaving NOTC on the 15s and 45s.

    Thanks for the details on the bus times. However, check the ometro website as many of these routes get canceled if there are no drivers. I ran into that problem recently and had a near miss with an event. (had to drive).

    Thanks for the bus details. However, due to driver shortage, it is best to check ometro website to see if the routes are canceled or when they are running. Almost missed an event due to no service….had to drive my car:(
