The Indianapolis Motor Speedway offers round trip shuttle services for purchase providing safe and stress-free travel to the Indianapolis 500.

Shuttles (school buses) will be transporting guests to and from IMS via 2 locations:

  • Indianapolis International Airport – Ground Transportation Center
  • Gate Ten Events & Parking (located across the street from Lucas Oil Stadium at 345 West McCarty St. Indianapolis, IN 46225)

Quick Facts

  • Drop off at IMS will occur in the Main Gate Parking lot across from Gate 2, on the south end of the facility between Oval Turns 1 and 2.
  • Downtown (Cash or Credit) will charge $20 per vehicle to park at their facility.
  • The Indianapolis International Airport (Cash ONLY) will charge $10 per vehicle to park at their facility.
  • All shuttle customers will return to Main Gate parking lot post race.
  • All shuttle customers, regardless of age must hold a shuttle pass in order to ride.
  • All shuttles are school buses.

Shuttles will begin departing with 50 laps to go and continue 2 hours after the checkered flag. Guests with shuttle tickets will return to the Main Gate parking lot to return to their original pick-up location. Shuttles will continue until all guests have been returned to their pick-up point.

Bike to the 500

For several years, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Bike Indianapolis have collaborated to offer race fans a safe and healthy commute to the Speedway on Race Day through Bike to the 500. New this year, the Race Day commute starts at the AMP at 16 Tech and follows a police escort to the racetrack, where cyclists will then park outside the famed Gate 1. This year, Bike to the 500 is expanding to allow for bike parking at IMS all month long. This is as close as it gets to all of Race Day’s most exciting action!


Guests will be dropped off and picked up at the corner of 10th & Polco on Indy 500 Race Day. All other days of the Month of May, drop off and pickup is in Lot 3P.


Guests who choose to use a taxi to be transported to and from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will be dropped off at the corner of 10th St & Polco St. Guests can only be picked up at this location at the conclusion of the race.
