City Offers Park And Ride Service During Price Is Right Event
March 25, 2013 -
The City wants people to plan to use a free Park and Ride Kingston Transit shuttle service when they come on down to see the Price is Right at the K-Rock Centre on Tuesday.
The free Kingston Transit shuttle will operate between 12:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. between the Memorial Centre (Alfred Street parking lot) and Gate 4 of the K-Rock Centre at The Tragically Hip Way. The shuttle leaves the Memorial Centre every 15 minutes (at :00, :15, :30, and :45) and also leaves the K-Rock Centre every 15 minutes (at :07, :22, :37,:52).
"This worked so well during the Scottie's Tournament of Hearts, we're pleased to be able to offer this great option again to help promote Kingston Transit," says Jeremy DaCosta, Manager of Kingston Transit.
The move is aimed at relieving parking congestion associated with the high-attendance expected at this daytime event and the number of regular daytime parkers.
More information on event parking and the shuttle can be found on our event parking map.
