If you need a spot for a couple of hours only, you can also park your vehicle on the surrounding streets. City of Evansville police monitor the streets from 8 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday, so read the posted signs carefully to avoid getting a ticket

On most weekends, you can stay longer than two hours, but we recommend garages and lots for extended stays.

The METS buses run between 6:15 AM and 12:15 AM Monday through Saturday, while the operation ceases at 6:15 PM on Sundays. The standard fare is $1.50, and you may see all routes and more info here.
