O'Lydia's Pub & Grill has been in the shuttle game for a long time, carting fans to Brewers games, Bucks games, college basketball games, lakefront festivals, concerts and more. Now, they are upping their services with shuttles to and from Lambeau Field for Packers games.
Because the trip to Green Bay is longer, O'Lydia's co-owner Rick Sackett says he opted to rent a new coach bus with bathrooms and WiFi instead of using their usual shuttle busses.
"Our buses are great, but for that long of a ride and with drinking involved we thought it best to have better accommodations and a lavatory on board," says Sackett.
The cost for a round-trip ticket is $50, which includes the ride, parking fee and driver tip. (It does not include a game ticket). It also includes a deli sandwich, chips and bottle of water for the ride home.
"You're more than welcome to bring a small cooler for the ride and a larger cooler to be stowed underneath if you'd like," says Sackett.
The shuttle will leave four hours before kickoff and one hour after the game is over.
"It's a great way to get people to and from Lambeau who enjoy having drinks and don’t want to worry about driving," says Sackett.

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
