OMAHA (KPTM)- It is something city officials have been planning for, for months. Parking during the two possible days the College World Series could overlap with the Olympic Swim Trials.
Omaha police had around 30 officers on patrol, directing traffic near TD Ameritrade Park and the Century Link Center.
They said they saw little to no issues Monday evening. Fans, however disagreed.
Since tens of thousands of fans were downtown for the events, parking was at a premium.
Some chose to take their chances at getting a spot near all of the action, while others chose to park miles away and take shuttles to the stadium and Century Link Center.
"If you want to park inexpensively you got to walk a mile," one fan said.
"They do need more parking close to the venues," Jeff Kaumeyer said.
He and his wife parked a ways away from the stadium. They said it was a parking pain.
"The town is so hospitable to major sporting events and stuff and yet a lot of entrepreneurs are making a buck on parking and you have to stay a long way away from the events."
They aren't the only ones looking for a place to park.
Kathy Dagerman has been going to the games for a while. She said she would rather pay the six dollars for a round trip shuttle ride and not 40.
If there is another baseball game Tuesday, shuttles will run from 5-7pm at Westroads Mall and Mutual of Omaha at Midtown Crossing.
