Problems Parking Downtown?
Not if you know where to park!!!
It’s tough to find an on-street parking spot these days. Don’t waste your time searching and head to one of many downtown parking lots or garages.
Use this link for a map of the downtown parking locations.
Many of the parking garages near Moore’s Square are free after 5pm and on weekends. The other downtown lots and garages charge a minimal fee ranging from $3 to $5.
Did you know that it could cost you over $100 if your car is towed in downtown and they only take cash!! Scam…probably but what can you do about it? I had my car towed 3 blocks and it was $90 to free it. I had to find the towing company, walk back to find a cash machine and then walk back to the towing company.
Don’t forget to check out the real time R-Line route, as it may be easier to find a parking near one of the stops at the edge of downtown and take the bus to your final destination. Many visitors tell me they find spots in the west end of downtown and then ride the bus into the Fayetteville Street District or Moore Square.
