Bus Parking Info


If you are arranging bus transportation, please contact Ashley Wilkinson at the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation at 202-332-0994 or outreach@endtheoccupation.org to tell us where you will be parking so that we can liaise with you and insure smooth transportation to the rally.

Union Station

Union Station, located just a five minute’s walk from the rally on the West Lawn of the Capitol, has parking available for buses.  There are 50-60 bus parking spaces available at Union Station on a first-come, first-serve basis.  The rates for this type of parking are $20 from 7AM-7PM and $10 from 7PM-7AM.  Because of the limited parking space available, Union Station strongly recommends that you make a reservation for a bus parking space, which costs $50 for a 24-hour period (7AM-7AM). 

 

From Union Station’s webpage on parking:

Motorcoach (bus) / Recreational vehicle parking is available in the attached parking garage for vehicles with a 13 foot clearance. As of June 2005, the parking garage will be undergoing construction for its new parking addition. Once the expansion is complete, there will be more than 100 bus spaces available. In the mean time, daily bus spaces will be available, first come, first serve. We ask for your patience and that you please plan accordingly. Parking garage access is available from Massachusetts Avenue, NE – from a ramp on the East side of Union Station and from H Street, NE.

Call USPGC LLC 202-898-1950 for rates and policies.
