Traveling and parking downtown will be easier than ever for citizens during three upcoming summer events.

During the Taste of Fort Collins (June 12-14), Brewer’s Fest (June 27-28) and New West Fest (August 14-16), the City of Fort Collins will provide enhanced MAX Bus Rapid Transit service, and downtown parking structures will cost $5 on Saturdays and will be free on Sundays.

Citizens may utilize Transfort’s 10 minute MAX service to travel to and from downtown on busy weekends like these. During Friday and Saturday events, MAX service will increase in frequency with more service into the evenings and additional buses until midnight. Transfort is also providing MAX service on Sundays during the three events.

In addition, the festivals will have special event parking rates. The first two events will offer the special parking rate on Saturday at the Civic Center garage only, but New West Fest attendees will have the option of $5 parking at both downtown structures.

This is the first year the special event parking rate is being offered at more than one downtown event, and payment will only be accepted in cash. Both parking structures are free Sundays.
