The downtown garage is located adjacent to the Hot Rods Stadium on Eighth Avenue. It provides free parking for patrons visiting downtown merchants. Beginning Oct. 10, it will also provide additional free park and ride options for WKU commuters. When using the downtown garage for park and ride service, avoid parking in spaces marked as reserved for businesses.
