Here are some transportation and parking tips and tricks for when you head to Out to Lunch this summer!
  • The first hour of parking is FREE in the parking garages
  • Parking right next to Caras Park is in high demand. We recommend parking a little farther away to avoid traffic congestion (see the map below).
  • Ride the Line! Mountain Line is a great way to come Downtown and save some gas. It’s also Zero-Fare and all routes come to Downtown!
