parking tips

 
For all locations:  DO NOT leave anything valuable in your car!!!

For downtown venues (Freight, Civic Center Park, Berkeley Public Library):  Metered street parking until 6pm (enforced right up to 6pm).  

The Center Street garage (entrance on Addison Street) is the closest parking garage to the Freight, but other downtown garages may have cheaper rates. Click HERE for a map of other downtown Berkeley parking lots. You can also find free on-street parking (2 hour limit Monday-Friday until 6pm) in residential areas below Martin Luther King and north of University.

Also please note that the block on which the Freight is located is now ONE-WAY.  You must enter from east (Shattuck) side.
