So you're ready to join us for some citizen lobbying at the State Capitol? Or visiting your elected officials while they are in Atlanta? Here are some tips to getting around.
Public parking is available in several locations surrounding the Capitol. Fees vary, but are generally range from ten to twenty dollars for the entire day. Certain lots may be closed when the legislature is in session. The following lots are always open to the public if spaces are available:
- Steve Polk Plaza Parking
- Pete Hackney Parking Deck
- A surface lot located on the north side of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, a block west of the Capitol
- Underground Parking: A parking garage located on the north side of Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, two blocks west of the Capitol
Please pay close attention to the rate signs located at each public parking lot, as some lots require you to pay when you park. Failure to pay the proper amount for parking or failure to pay at the proper time will likely result in your vehicle being booted and require a $75 fee to have the boot removed.
