Here's some info on the shuttle system for Saturday courtesy of Yale.

Shuttle System Set For Saturday

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - All parking lots at Yale Bowl for this Saturday's Yale-Harvard football game are completely SOLD OUT. There will not be parking available on game day at Yale Bowl without a parking pass. Visitors to the Bowl on Nov. 21 who were not able to secure a parking pass in advance, should not come to the Bowl expecting to park on-site. Instead, there are numerous convenient parking options available to fans and FREE shuttle bus service to and from the Bowl is provided from two downtown locations. There is also a park and walk option available to fans in lots within one mile of the Yale Bowl. All of these options are detailed below.

Yale Athletics has partnered with the City of New Haven and the New Haven Parking Authority to provide parking options downtown. The following parking is available in Yale University lots FREE of charge on a first come-first served basis:

Lot 77: Ray Tompkins House - Located at the corner of Dixwell Ave , Tower Parkway, and Lake Place. Access from Tower Parkway between Payne Whitney Gym and the Ray Tompkins House.

Parking is also available from 8:00 am - 8:00 pm on Nov. 21 at two downtown New Haven Parking Authority garages. The Crown Street garage is located at 235 Crown Street between College and Temple Streets. The Temple Street Garage is located at 60 Temple Street and can be accessed from George Street, Temple Street or North Frontage Road. Yale has negotiated $3.00 daily rates at these two garages with the New Haven Parking Authority. Fans always have the option to park in other public parking lots. A parking map for the New Haven Parking Authority lots can be found here .

Yale Athletics and the City of New Haven are asking fans to avoid on-street metered parking in downtown New Haven. Metered parking is enforced on Saturdays and is not available as a full-day option. In addition, parking in the Westville neighborhood adjacent to Yale Bowl is reserved for the residents of Westville. Vehicles that violate either of these mandates risk being ticketed on Nov. 21.

The City of New Haven will open additional parking lots within walking distance to Yale Bowl on Nov. 21. The Sherman/Orchard Lot and Tyler/Sherman Lot will open at 8:30 a.m. Both lots are located between North and South Frontage Roads approximately 1.0 mile from Yale Bowl. The daily fee to park in these lots is $10.00. To see the walking route to Yale Bowl on a map, click here.

Starting at 8:00 a.m. on Nov. 21, FREE shuttle buses will bring fans from downtown New Haven to Yale Avenue at the Yale Bowl. The buses will run during and after the game from Yale Avenue to one downtown location at the corner of Chapel and York Streets. The
BLUE LINE is located at the Corner of Chapel and College Streets adjacent to Old Campus and the New Haven Green. The
WHITE LINE is located at Payne Whitney Gymnasium (70 Tower Parkway) on the Yale campus.

For further questions and information visit The Game website or call the Yale Athletics Ticket Office at (203) 432-1400.

Yale Athletics encourages fans to prepare final travel plans in advance of Nov. 21 and wishes all fans safe travel to New Haven.

Governor M. Jodi Rell began the home part of the season with a proclamation for "Tom Williams Day." Now word comes that Thursday will be "Yale Day" with a pep rally set for Yale's Old Campus at 9 p.m.
