DSO Courtesy Shuttle: Graciously donated by Lee and Floy Barthel, the DSO offers a golf cart-style courtesy shuttle for patrons who would like extra assistance entering The Max. The shuttle pick-up point is located on Parsons Street, near Sosnick Courtyard. This shuttle is available for all DSO patrons who need assistance as well as patrons who have paid for valet services, with priority given to those in need of assistance.

Because the QLine tracks occupy the traffic lane closest to the sidewalk in front of The Max, drop-off and pick-up is not permitted on Woodward Avenue. Please use the designated drop-off point on Selden Street between Woodward and Cass; the best address to search for the drop-off point is 20 Selden Street. This is also the preferred address to use for rideshare arrivals and departures.
