Do I need a charter bus permit to park in downtown Minneapolis?

The answer is, yes. If you are transporting people to downtown Minneapolis (Target Center, Target Field, US Bank Stadium, Orchestra Hall, Orpheum Theatre, State Theatre, Guthrie Theatre, etc…) and need to park your charter bus, you must buy a parking permit ahead of arriving to your destination. This applies to all charter bus companies.

This rule also applies to any group that needs to park a large vehicle on the downtown streets of Minneapolis like a band playing a concert at a venue.

Overnight Parking

Overnight parking is available in Zone 6 (950 Hawthorne Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55403)

Select Zone 6 for overnight parking after navigating to the online permitting website, in order to buy an overnight permit.
