Follow the Cars


Penn State is not the easiest place to get into and out of on game day. The campus is nestled between central Pennsylvania farmlands and mountains, approximately three hours from Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Most fans use Interstate 80 to Route 220 (soon to be I-99) or U.S. Route 322 to get to the stadium. 

The good thing is that if it’s your first visit, don’t worry about getting lost: Simply follow the line of cars. There are plenty of signs that will direct you to the Stadium, as well.

If you plan to tailgate beforehand, your best option is to give yourself a minimum of two hours before kick off as traffic starts getting heavy close to game time. After the game, plan to re-open the tailgate or take the opportunity to stroll downtown. The traffic jam leaving the stadium – there are only two ways out – starts before the final whistle, and it isn’t uncommon to wait for an hour to get on the road.  

Where you park is simple – wherever the parking attendants direct you. Parking is either reserved, pre-paid general admission, or pay when you get there, and this determines where you will park. For a parking map go here.   

If you aren’t tailgating or plan to tailgate with friends, you may want to consider taking a shuttle. Buses run from the hotels to Bryce Jordan Center. The local CATA transit system has special football bus routes.
