Shuttles & Parking
Let us be your chauffeur! Unfortunately we are fresh out of limos, but our super spacious shuttles and buses should be just as comfortable and almost as stylish. On-site parking is available for $10 or $20, but the shuttles are the fastest, shortest and best free way to get to the front gate. Our accessible shuttles (many routes are handicap accessible and all Tulsa Transit shuttles from the South Denver Street Station are accessible) start one hour before the festival opens and stop an hour after closing. Enjoy the Fest!

The shuttles will travel between four major loops; the Downtown Shuttle Loop which runs every 15 minutes, the Tulsa Transit Loop directly to and from the Downtown Tulsa Transit Hub running every 20 minutes, the Trade Winds Loop which runs every 30 minutes, and the Crowne Plaza Loop which also runs every 30-45 minutes.

Shared Ride and Cabs
The shared ride area and cab stand is located at 20th Street and Jackson. Shared ride vehicles (Uber/Lyft) and cabs will access this area ONLY from 17th Street and 23rd Streets. Proceed on 17th to 20th Street, where space is available for pick up and drop off. Vehicles will make a U-turn and then proceed back out via 17th Street. This will be the only area for shared ride and cab pickups so please drop your “pin” at the intersection of 20th and Jackson Streets outside of the Wiesn.
Bike to Oktoberfest! Ride Your Bike, Park for Free.
Tulsa is a cycling community and we love bike riders! As a way of saying thanks, you can park your ride for free at two locations:
• Cycle Hospitality Zone with free shuttle service to the Wiesn and back, located at Spoke House Bicycles, 25 E 21st St, Tulsa, OK 74114. They’ll tag your bike and store it whilst you enjoy the Oktoberfest zen.
• Spoke House Bike Corral, located on the River Parks bike path located at the southern end of River West Festival Park just inside the entrance. They will valet for your bike to allow you to join all the fun at the Wiesn!
Note: Hours of operation of both the hospitality area and the bike corral are until 8:30 p.m. each evening, and until close on Sunday evening (6:00 p.m.).
