The exceptions are The Water Campus for which a private shuttle will be used, and the Electric Depot on Government Street which you may drive to following the Friday morning activities. CATS operates the Capital Park Shuttle (Route 16) which has a mostly north-south route up and down Third and Lafayette streets - linking North Boulevard Town Square to the "North Campus" of government offices on the shore of Capitol Lake, north of the State Capitol. The Capitol Park shuttle is FREE and operates on a 30 minute headway.
