Free parking vouchers like the one above will be available at participating businesses.
The Alliance for Pioneer Square, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and the City of Seattle are teaming up with Pioneer Square businesses and parking operators to offer free parking during the next six First Thursday art walks. The promotion is one of several steps WSDOT and the Seattle Department of Transportation are taking to offset lost on-street parking due to construction of the State Route 99 tunnel and other work along the waterfront.
First Thursday patrons can take advantage of the program by parking in one of three participating parking facilities and receiving a parking voucher from their destination. Free parking is available between 5 pm and 10 pm on the following First Thursdays: November 1, December 6, February 7, March 7, April 4, or May 2. The parking locations and more information about the free parking promotion are available at www.firstthursdayseattle.com. (Meghan Shepard, 684-4208).
