I don't know how you manage to pull this off. This would be my biggest complaint with FF thus far, and I have HEARD it hasn't gone unnoticed by others and that is has actually been talked about on radio/tv personalities, and that is the lack of viable,(close by) on the street parking. Last week, I got incredibly lucky, but that's not going to happen most of the time. This never seemed to be an issue with the BC, could almost always find street parking fairly close..not with FF, IF I do happen to find a spot on the street, it's usually pretty far away..like a 10+ minute walk afterwards.

Sure, I can park in the same spots I used to for the BC, but that's a bit further than I'd like. I want something that is close by that takes me 5 minutes at most to get to the car after and get the heck out of there. Street parking around FF is NOT optimal by any stretch.

How close to you expect to park?  Glow and I part on the street about 3 blocks away, and have never had trouble finding a spot.
Have some patience, FFS.

Also, any standing room available with a view of the court?

I don't know about actual tickets, but in the new arena, ALL the standing room has a view of the court. Even a lot of the booze stands have a view of the court.

Maybe next year some of you cheapskates should get a job as a beertender there so you can watch the game and get paid for it.

Random suggestion for some of the less phone inclined, more experienced mu fans, you can save your ticket in the wallet app on your iphone so you don't have to pull it up online when getting in

Seems like you were pretty spoiled and have pretty high expectations for downtown street parking in a decent sized city, while also expecting a less than a 5 minute walk to a professional sports stadium, during a marquee sporting event. I don't think that is a reasonable expectation anywhere in the US, so I'm very surprised people are wasting air time talking about it.

Street parking was gone on 4th street, that was south of Kilbourn Ave to Well Street. That area killed some great street parking spots. That was due to re-doing the road, that project is now done.

Can confirm that you can also do this for android. Also you can save all the games to your phones not just the next one up so if you have some time and wifi you can download the whole season to avoid trying to pull it up in the cold outside the forum with questionable reception and make the line hopefully go quicker.

Is this true for the breezeway from the garage third floor as well. Thinking of parking there this time.

Better get to that structure at least 45 minutes before tip or pre-buy access cause we got to the area 30 minutes before the Kansas State game and the structure was full.

It seems like the Isaacs Parking Lot is less busy now that the Fiserv Forum is open. I believe it's $15/$20 for gameday.

Y’all should go to Glass and Griddle up on 6th, have a drink and walk the 3 blocks.

I believe it works OK on I-phones, but for android, if you use Google Pay that has a bug that you cannot swipe to a 2nd ticket, it only displays the 1st ticket if you have more than 1. You can take a screen-shot of the bar code and scan those.

Thanks. Do you need to flash your mobile student ticket to get into the student section? We have a few singles from other parts of the stadium that would like to sit with us.

Depends on how young you look, I can get in the student section no problem with a larger crowd of obvious students. If you look 30 though, they gunna be asking.

Tons of standing room.

And the 3rd floor is preferred, so I don’t think you can buy those as a drive up on game day.

What is causing this problem is the explosion of apt/condo residences in the immediate vicinity of the Forum.  Back when the areas around the BC were a bunch of closed down warehouses parking was easy to come by.  Now the residents take up a lot of that parking forcing us game day parkers further and further away.

I am outraged! How dare the city allow those dilapidated buildings be replaced by upscale housing that brings more real estate and sales tax dollars into the city? Don't they realize that people have a right to free parking within two blocks of anywhere they want to go in the Downtown area?

Is there a list of all the shuttles? I know a few and usually just do Jackson's as it's a fairly easy walk if the shuttle leaves without me.

Great question, I'd like to know this as well as the schedule, like when do they leave, when do they return etc??

Haven't had that problem yet  and I can swipe my two tickets, but certainly will look out for it. I will say I wish there was a way to download the whole season at once or at least all the tickets for one game at once instead of having to click on each individual ticket for each game.

That is not true. The Fiserv Forum can print tickets for you at the box office. So, can the Al McGuire Box Office. Plus, the ushers last Saturday confirmed that to me. I brought two older people who don't have smart phones to the game. Those free tickets we get as STH.

Nielsen, just making sure as the only person in their 40s on planet earth without a smart phone (on purpose, have a job that where they'd expect to be able to reach me 14 hours a day instead of 8 if I had a phone that could get e-mail) that I have this right. If I buy a ticket via the exchange this year, I'll have to go to the box office, have them print it for me, then go in? Correct? Thanks in advance

This site might help https://www.tripsavvy.com/grab-free-shuttle-to-a-milwaukee-bucks-game-3572016


Or at the next game, check out the names on all of the shuttles making pickups outside the FF, they line up all down the block.

I know O'Lydias, Stenny's, Saz's (PITA more often than not), Mo's downtown, WI Athletic Club all run shuttles.

For what its worth, I looked at this briefly from Wauwatosa at places we've taken Brewers shuttles before:

Jackson's/ThirstyDuck on Bluemound&113th does not for MU. Neither does Mo's on Bluemound&Hwy100. 

Saz's on State&55 does. They have two shuttles that each run twice before game (used to have a school bus). At least twice after game.....For UW might schedule more? People reserve spots so no guarantee if you just drop in. Call ahead.

Intown locations for these might be different like Jackson's.

There might be others I missed too. Any info on West/NorthWest shuttles appreciated.

You know, you could always get a phone and not tell your employer.

Also, I made it clear to my employer that I don't check my work email when I am not working (especially because I don't have a company-provided phone).  They can text me if they need an answer right away, but it better be pretty f*cking important.  They have respected my policy, mostly because they don't have much of a choice.  At the beginning, when I was called on it, I would ask, "Exactly why did you need an immediate response to that email?"  They usually didn't have one other than, "I just wanted to know the answer to my question".  They looked pretty sheepish when I responded with, "And that was worth invading my private time?"

The people that actually do respond to emails on vacation or at night feed their own problem.

For most people, 99% of  work emails received during off-hours involve issue that can be handled the next time the person is actually on duty.
Have some patience, FFS.
