Q: Where's the best place to park?
A: That depends on your budget, willingness to walk and when you plan to park. Keep in mind you'll likely encounter more traffic if you choose a spot closer to the action.

Q: Can I reserve a spot in advance?
A: Yes. You can see up-to-the-minute prices for several available garages and lots on our NFL Experience Parking Reservations and Super Bowl Sunday Parking Reservations pages. Downtown has more than 70,000 spaces available, which helps keep prices from getting too out of hand.

Q: Are parking meters an option?
A: Yes, but only if you're prepared to walk several blocks. The city has closed more than 2,000 meters during the Super Bowl period to allow for additional travel lanes and in preparation for a potential big snowfall. In general, you'll need to park north of Michigan Street to find a metered space.

Q: Can I book a space on the Super Bowl park-and-ride service?
A: Not anymore. The tickets have sold out.

Q: What are the public transportation options for NFL Experience and Super Bowl Village?
A: IndyGo is operating its usual fixed-route service with some route modifications based on Super Bowl traffic restrictions. It is not offering additional services or extended hours. IndyGo buses will be free to ride from Feb. 2 through Feb. 5. Full rate, schedule and route information is available here. NOTE: Some routes make their final departures from downtown before the evening's events end, so make sure to plan ahead.

Q: What are the public transportation options for Super Bowl Sunday?
A: IndyGo plans to offer free rides on its local fixed routes on Sunday, Feb. 5. It will follow its normal fixed-route schedule. See above.

Q: Do I have any other transportation options?
A: Yes, depending on where you live and when you're headed downtown. During weekdays, the Indy Express Bus runs from Carmel and Fishers to Indianapolis for $5 each way. The service also plans to add Saturday service on Feb. 4. Details are here. And starting Feb. 2, the Super Bowl Host Committee plans to offer a shuttle service to downtown from several area shopping malls, including Greenwood Park, Clay Terrace, The Fashion Mall at Keystone and Metropolis Mall. Pick-up times and locations are here.

Q: Is parking downtown safe?
A: Generally yes, particularly if you take a few precautions, according to Indianapolis Downtown Inc.: Lock your car; either hide or take valuables with you; don't hide extra keys outside your vehicle; park in a well-lit area; and always be aware of your surroundings.
