Como Shuttle Service will Begin In May

 

Visitors can avoid parking hassles with our free shuttle service! Shuttle service begins weekends in May – September 28. Daily service runs June 2nd through August 10.  There will be NO shuttle service June 20-22. The shuttle bus allows passengers to board at the staffed off-site parking lot at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds, located on the south side of Como Avenue across from the State Fair’s Warner Coliseum (unless other location is noted below) and within minutes of the front doors of the Visitor Center. The shuttle runs continuously 9:30am – 6:30pm. The buses are wheelchair and stroller accessible.

Beginning May 1st residential permit parking restrictions will be in effect.  There will be no parking allowed on many streets west of Como Park from 10am-4pm, May 1-September 30 without a City issued permit. Do not park on streets with signs indicating “Permit Parking Only”.

Many institutions & destinations in St. Paul, such as colleges and heavily visited shopping areas, have permit parking in & around the surrounding neighborhoods.  Permit parking was sought after by the surrounding residents and implemented by Saint Paul City Council in 2011. Como Park Zoo & Conservatory recognizes & respects that the parking outside of the park should be easily accessible and obtainable for residents. If you do choose to drive to Como, we strongly encourage you to use the free shuttle service.

To get to us by bus, visit Metro Transit.org for schedules/bus routes or call 612-373-3333.
