Need a ride to Beyonce and Jay-Z at Williams-Brice? Let Columbia’s Comet shuttle you

Tickets to Jay-Z and Beyonce’s OTR II concert at Williams-Brice in Columbia on Tuesday? Check.

Pre-paid parking spot really close to the stadium? Oops.

Reserved a rideshare with Uber or Lyft? Uh, no.

If you forgot to purchase a pre-paid parking spot at one of the lots surrounding the stadium — or just don’t want to bother driving through all that traffic and haven’t reserved a personal driver — the Comet might be the ride for you.

The Central Midlands Regional Transit Authority, the Comet, in Columbia will be offering a round trip shuttle to the On the Run II concert for $3.

Pick up and drop off locations will be at The SC State Museum parking lot at 310 Gervais St. and at the Lincoln Street Parking Garage at 820 Washington St.

There will be limited free parking at the museum and paid spaces available at city rates at the city parking garages.

The shuttle starts at 5:30 p.m., with a final trip before the concert at 7:30 p.m.

After the concert, the shuttle will start at 10:30 p.m. and the last trip will be one hour after the concert ends at Williams-Brice.

Purchase passes on the bus or download the Catch the Comet app at catchthecomet.org and purchase on your mobile device. You will be able to track the bus along the route on the Transloc app, search for OTR II Shuttle.
