FREE Shuttle to Big 12 Action


NCAA has announced that fans will not be allowed in the Big 12 tournament games after Wednesday due to precautionary efforts related to the Coronavirus. Due to this information, we are cancelling the shuttle bus for Thurs-Sat to all Big 12 games. We apologize for this inconvenience.


Big 12 Men's basketball returns to Kansas City on March 11-14, 2020.  If you're planning to take a little jaunt to KC to enjoy great basketball, fantastic sights, delicious BBQ and more, we invite you to explore Merriam...just eight miles from downtown Kansas City.

To help you enjoy the best of Kansas City in an affordable manner, the Merriam Visitors Bureau is once again offering a FREE game shuttle to Big 12 games for fans overnighting in any Merriam hotel (see bus schedule; rules & restrictions apply).

Did you know that parking in the downtown area nearby the arena costs nearly $30 per day? Why not save that cash for a foam finger, nachos or your favorite beverage and let us transport you to the game? We'll pick you up at one of the designated Merriam hotels on the bus schedule, deliver you to the arena, then come back later to return you to Merriam. Pretty simple, right?

Thanks for exploring Merriam...next door neighbor to Kansas City!
