Parking

Parking Structure 6 is directly across Cass Avenue from State Hall. Parking for visitors is $2 for the first 20 minutes and $1 for each additional 20 minutes, with a maximum of $10. Network Detroit attendees who plan to attend the entire conference would therefore expect to pay $10.

Parking Structure 3 is on Warren Avenue just East of Woodward, and is about 3 blocks away from State Hall. Parking for visitors is a flat rate of $7.50 regardless of length of stay. This would be the cheaper option for Network Detroit attendees who plan to attend the entire conference.

Street parking is also available along Cass Avenue and around the WSU campus, at either $1 or $2 per hour depending on the zone. You can feed your meter remotely using the City of Detroit’s mobile parking app, http://www.parkdetroit.us/.
