A few of you have asked about the situation regarding bus service to UW games this season.
The following is the official response from the University of Washington:
"Thank you for inquiring about options for transportation to Husky football games. We are working to finalize the plans for continuing free Husky bus service for fans attending games this season. Detailed schedule and service information will soon be announced publicly to the local press and will be posted to the internet at GoHuskies.com as soon as it is available. Thank you for your patience. Go Huskies!"
Two other points to consider: UW is legally required to provide a free service to fans as part of the transportation management plan put in place after the expansion of Husky Stadium in 1987; and UW spends about half-a-million dollars a year on transportation. It is expected something will be finalized this week with the first home game arriving on Sept. 6 against BYU.
