Midtown Crossing will offer a free shuttle from the shopping center to the College World Series. Fans can hop aboard the shuttle at 31st Avenue and Farnam Street, near the Metro bus stop, and be dropped off at the CenturyLink Center.

“Park the car here at Midtown Crossing, have a drink or something to eat, and we'll get you to CenturyLink on time,” said Molly Skold, marketing director of Midtown Crossing.

• For Friday's opening celebration, shuttle service will begin at noon. The shuttle will run a continuous loop from Midtown Crossing to the front of the CenturyLink Center every 15 to 30 minutes. Service will end about 60 minutes after the end of the fireworks display. The special shuttle will only stop at Midtown Crossing and the CenturyLink Center.

• Saturday, the service will again run every 15 to 30 minutes, beginning at noon – two hours before the first game – and ending 60 minutes after the last game's final out.

The shuttle will continue to operate throughout the series, running two hours before each day's first game and one hour after final the game's completion.

Fans can park at one of Midtown Crossing's two garages, which are accessible from 33rd, Farnam and Harney Streets. The first three hours are free, then $1 for each additional hour with a maximum fee of $6.

Last year the shuttle ferried about 11,000 people to and from the games, Skold said.
