SPECTATOR PARKING, TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS SET FOR ALLTECH FEI WORLD EQUESTRIAN GAMES
Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games spectators will have a variety of parking and transportation options, including hotel shuttles and onsite parking, for the 16 days of the event.
With the recent availability of property adjacent to the Kentucky Horse Park, parking for 10,000 vehicles each day is now possible onsite. Parking will be $20 per vehicle with cash only accepted upon entry. A limited number of premium parking spaces near the spectator entry, with pass-out parking privileges, are also available for $100 per day at alltechfeigames.com.
Nine hotel shuttle routes will be implemented for Games spectators, providing a door-to-door transportation service for selected hotels. Spectators who have arranged accommodations through the Games Housing Bureau for the selected hotels, located in Lexington, Georgetown and Frankfort, will be e-mailed a direct link on or before July 6 with the opportunity to pre-purchase hotel shuttle wristbands online for $5 before Aug. 1. After Aug. 1, the shuttle wristbands will be $10 for Housing Bureau guests. During the Games, wristbands can be purchased for $15, subject to availability. Wristbands are date-specific and valid for one day’s round trip transport to the Kentucky Horse Park and are non-transferable. A list of hotels on the shuttle routes will be available on the Spectator Information page of the Games website by July 6.
Buses equipped with ADA seating will be operating on all hotel shuttle systems, and mobility shuttles will be stationed in the onsite parking lots for those who need assistance from designated ADA parking areas.
In addition, taxicabs and Gold Shield Car Services will be available to transport spectators to the main entrance of the Games at the Kentucky Horse Park. LexTran, the City of Lexington’s public transportation system, will also have roundtrip bus service to the Kentucky Horse Park for $5 per passenger, with parking near Lextran’s Vine Street terminal in downtown Lexington.
“We feel these parking and transportation options provide maximum flexibility and value for our spectators,” said Games CEO Jamie Link. “We expect thousands of people will visit the park each day and our goal is that everyone arrives in a safe and efficient manner, ready to enjoy a great day at the Games.”
Detailed information on transportation services, including directions to onsite parking, hotel shuttle routes, and information for local commuters whose daily routes may be impacted by event traffic will be available soon at alltechfeigames.com.
