We will have my sister-in-law with us Saturday at the game. She has knee problems, is there a way I can drop her off close or in front of the stadium? If not, what is the closest I could get to drop her off? Thanks for the help. I've never had to worry about it before, we always park in the same place but it would be quite a bit of walking for her.

Also, what time do you think the lots will be full? When we came to the last playoff game in '04 we stayed at the Double Tree so we just walked over but we will have to drive in and park this time.

Thanks again

Carolinas Medical Center offers rides from the hospital right to the front of the stadium and then back to the hospital after the game for $20.

If not, there is a handicap drop off zone on Morehead and Mint. It's probably a block and a half to the stadium from there.

I'd go with the drop off at the hospital and just pay if I were you. Traffic is pretty messy next to the stadium and it would be worth the $20 to me to not have to deal with it. And unless you have a handicap placard, you might have trouble getting all the way to the drop-off area at the stadium. Hospital is not too far from the stadium so it won't be so if you still choose to drive yourself, it won't be bad making it back to pick her up.

The last time we used the CMC shuttle we were told that the price was going to be $25.00 beginning with the next game. That covers everyone in the car btw.
