Transit and Biking Options
Only a limited number of stalls will be available in the Weitz CEC Guest Parking Lot E, so please consider using an alternative mode of transportation. You can plan your trip via bus using Metro Transit's website or Google Maps; the 2 bus route makes stops in front of Dodge campus. Google Maps can also help you plan your trip via bicycle. This community led resource tells you where you can find bike racks and fixit stations.
