As if parking downtown wasn’t tight enough already, a giant chunk of downtown, conveniently located right behind the Bridgestone Arena, has been closed off for the new Music City Center construction through April 2010. And there’s that whole paying for Saturday parking meters thing now, too. What’s a downtown-event-goer to do?
BEEP. BEEP stands for Best Ever Event Parking, and while mildly cheesy, we can see this being a lifesaver for the next few months. Beginning tonight for the Muse concert and continuing through May 31, Lot R at LP Field will be open for FREE parking with an optional $3 round-trip shuttle service during every Bridgestone Arena event. Shuttles will run every 10 minutes from Lot R to the corner of 4th & Demonbreun. Parking at LP Field will open 2 hours prior to the scheduled Bridgestone Arena event, and close at 2am.
