    Parking at metered parking or parking off site:

    If you choose to park in metered parking instead of the garage, It is 25 cents per half hour. it will cost around $4 in change and you can only park a maximum of 4 hours, so we suggest arriving no earlier than 9:00 am if you plan to park at the meters.  There is metered parking along tech street and Frew street. See map   

    You can try parking for free down the street on Forbes Ave or at the golf course. past the golf course and riding any 61 or 59 numbered bus down to campus. The 67 also stops at CMU if you park on Wilkins Ave.
