If you're headed to the Oregon District on the weekend and you're trying to save money on parking, a new low-cost option will soon be available.
Oregon District visitors will be able to park in the Transportation Center Garage, located at the corner of Fifth and Jefferson streets between The Neon movie theater and the Convention Center, at a reduced $3 rate Fridays and Saturdays between 5 p.m. and 1 a.m., according to a Downtown Dayton Partnership release.
A complimentary shuttle also will transport visitors from the garage to several stops throughout the Oregon District. The shuttle will run continuously, picking people back up from those stops and returning them to the garage.
The hop-on, hop-off shuttle will make several stops throughout the Oregon District. Shuttle hours on Fridays and Saturdays will be 5 p.m. to 1 a.m.
The reduced garage rate and complimentary shuttle will launch Friday, Oct. 16.
“The Oregon District has never been a more popular destination for shopping, dining, brewpubs and other activities,” ODBA President Mike Martin said in a release. “With our growing number of new businesses and our mainstays expanding, we’re seeing lots of new guests to downtown and the Oregon District, and we want to ensure all our patrons – old and new – can easily find a parking space and quickly get to their favorite Oregon District destinations.”
“How long do you usually spend driving around looking for a space?” said Robin Sassenberg, owner of The Trolley Stop. “With the garage, you arrive downtown, park in the garage, relax in the shuttle or walk a few blocks, and that’s it. You can hop on and hop off the shuttle to get to and from many locations quickly. It’s simple and easy.
