My buddy took the park and ride. Others parked in the lot. The ones that parked in the lot actually made out better than the park and riders but the traffic jam bottle necked so everyone was sitting in traffic.
Sounds like it could have been better but . . .

From the link...
Around 8 p.m., President Trump arrived at the Make America Great Again Victory Rally, hosted by Tac Air and organized by the White House and the Trump campaign. Once the rally was over around 9 p.m., “people flooded to the waiting buses,” and many of them opted to walk back to their vehicles, OPD said.

The Omaha Airport Authority said the Trump campaign rented 40 buses to transport people from remote parking lots to the event site and ran them for 10 hours. The bus company confirmed Wednesday that those drivers were paid, deflating another incorrect rumor circulating on social media.

OPD said additional Metro Area Transit buses were called in after the event to help transport people away from the rally.

Transportation from the site to parking areas began immediately following the event, an OAA spokesman said, but many people opted to forego the wait for a bus ride and walk back to their vehicles. OPD said the shortest walk back to a parking lot was 2.5 miles and that “foot traffic on Lindberg Drive slowed bus traffic and delayed bus trips considerably.”

Officers also gave rides to elderly and handicapped attendees as they were able, the spokesman said.

Full response from Omaha Police
According to a preliminary report there were 30 people contacted for medical reasons and a total of 7 people transported to area hospitals with a variety of medical conditions. Those needing medical attention were contacted by medics over the duration of the event, not just at the end. Eppley Airport Fire Department will have a better accounting of the total number of medical contacts, reasons and times.

Buses loaded and hauled approximately 25,000 people to the event site over a 10 hour period of time. The buses began running at 10:00 a.m. and ran up to the start of the rally at 8 p.m. There were 40 total buses used for the event. Law enforcement did assist people out of the area who wanted to leave or couldn't make it on buses before the rally ended. When the speech was over at about 9 p.m., people flooded to the waiting buses. There were buses specifically for handicap people in attendance. Law enforcement made buses a priority on the event outbound. Additional buses were called in from Metro Area Transit to assist with the outbound to get people back to their cars.

Many people elected to walk back to the parking areas instead of waiting for a bus. The shortest walk to the nearest parking lot was approximately 2.5 miles. The foot traffic on Lindberg Drive slowed bus traffic and delayed bus trips considerably. There was an abundance of uniformed officers in marked cars and on foot attempting to direct traffic to clear the congestion.

Officers assisted in giving rides to elderly and infirm people who elected to walk. Many people underestimated the distance from the event back to the parking lot on foot. The last person was loaded into a bus from the rally site at about 11:50 p.m. Uniformed officers from several departments stayed until all lots were cleared and assisted numerous people find cars parked in the area. Vehicle and pedestrian traffic returned to normal at about 12:30 a.m.

Omaha Police Department spokesman
Whoever handled logistics should have adapted and gotten more transportation...
They did add more busses.

The buses never came - folks had to walk three miles in freezing weather.

All this after standing in line for two hours to get in and six hours at the rally

How would you like to be that kid?

Omaha police say there were 30 people contacted for medical reasons and a total of seven people transported to area hospitals with a "variety of medical conditions." Of those transported, six people were in serious condition. It is not clear what specifically they were transported for.

Sounds like they were not prepared. Walking 2.5 miles in 10 degree weather can be brutal, if you do not have the right gear and not in decent shape. Hope they are okay!!
Without the burning buildings, I'm sure it wasn't as warm as your side's events.

I know. It's always someone else's fault. I'll remember that the next time I can't find my car in the lot of the local Piggly Wiggly, wandering around aimlessly in the snow wearing shorts and flip flops. I"ll demand the manager's head on a spike, that is if I can find my way back to the front door.
So you are claiming Trump supporters in Omaha were morons?

No, it means whomever organized that Omaha rally were retards. I’m sure Trump didn’t organize it but someone did. I swear to God some people on this forum can’t read or understand simple English.

Did you go to the rally? If not WFC’s. You seem to have issues with your writing skills. Retard is also, not appropriate terminology.

The worst of the worst of the worst, are hypocrite gun owners voting for the extreme Democrat socialist communist baby killing, gun banning and money stealing, anti-Christian party. They are the *ENEMIES* of gun owners everywhere and are the enemy of America. That is absolutely undeniable and undebatable!!!!!

So you admit the planning was done by incompetent *******s. Got it.
The event shuttles would be organized locally, not by his national campaign staff. Your post makes NO sense.

I will just be even more happy when Trump wins re-election. Also, what about all the babies the Democrat Party and it’s supporters *enjoy* murdering each year after year after year. Haven’t those dumb SOB’s ever heard of birth control or do they just love ***murdering*** babies. They are some really really evil and messed up mentally SOB’s. That is absolutely undeniable and undebatable!!!
