    not a season ticket holder but has tickets to Cal game-
    she has a 'bum' leg so she can't walk far...

    is there someplace special she can park ? does she need a permit?

    who does she have to call ?

    Pretty sure you park in the garage next to the UMC & you get shuttled to Folsom. We have a couple of older people in our season ticket tailgating crew & we've complained to CU a ton - but that's what we're told. Unless you give like $5000 to park directly across from Folsom by the alum tailgate.

    For some of the other events at Folsom (namely graduation, which I attended for my brother last year), there is a handicap-access parking lot due east of the earth sciences building. This may be what unionbuff is referring to; I'm not sure. We forgot my dad's permit and they were cool with it, but there are probably far fewer attendees for graduation than there will be on Saturday.

    Exactly. It looks like the donation is only $500, but that doesn't help your friend anyway if she isn't a season ticket holder.

    But I did find this on CU's public parking website -
    [h=3]ADA Accessibility Parking[/h]
    Parking for persons with disabilities is available at the Euclid AutoPark (18th and Euclid Streets).
    • A wheelchair-accessible shuttle transports ticket holders with disabilities between Euclid AutoPark and Folsom Stadium continuously for two hours before and for one hour after the game.

    If she has walking issues she shouldn't be anywhere near a mine, let alone on top of one

    I don't know how soon before kickoff they shut down Colorado to traffic, but last year I was able to drive up and drop off at the corner of Colorado and Folsom without issue.

    Does she have a handicap parking permit? If so, then there definitely is special parking available.
