    Downtown DSM Parking

    Starting a new job in a couple of weeks and working at 801 Grand (not P-pal). No parking available. Can anyone provide me with a recommendation of a ramp to park at? I can expect to pay $100/a month, correct?

    Re: Downtown DSM Parking

    Can you not get a spot in the parking ramp across the street? Don't know the name of it off-hand.

    Personally, I'd find a place to park 15-20 min walk away, via the skywalk, and incorporate that into my fitness plan.


    I'm baaack! See my Hot Milk For Breakfast blog under Social Groups for more details

    If this were me I would say no so I don't have terrible B.O. the rest of the day after working up a sweat.

    I'm in the same boat (tomorrow)....

    Check with Keck Parking. They have lots ($60/mo) and ramps ($110) available all over downtown. Use their map on their website to determine where the closest spot is.

    FWIW...I put my request in with them last Thursday and I haven't heard back yet.

    There's always the Bus too...I'm sure you could park and ride.

    The Metro bus system stinks something fierce, but the one thing it IS reasonably good at is getting you back and forth from downtown.
