Parking Information

Volunteers are responsible for their own transportation to and from their volunteer shifts throughout the Games. Due to some parking restrictions and limitations at venues, please use public transit or carpool when possible.

You may be traveling early in the morning or late at night. Stay safe by walking in well-lit areas, coordinating transportation with another volunteer, and telling someone when you are leaving and what time you should arrive.
