President Trump Campaign Rally Free Event Parking
People wishing to attend the campaign rally on Oct. 4 at the Mayo Civic Center are encouraged to avoid trying to park downtown, and instead take advantage of free parking and shuttle service from the RPT Park & Ride lot at Rochester Community & Technical College.
RCTC is located at the corner of Hwy 14 and East Circle Drive. The Park & Ride lot is located to the West of the main campus buildings off of College Pkwy and College Dr SE. Over flow parking is available at the adjacent Gravel lot.
The Park & Ride will be served by a temporary route, the Route 3 Special. This route will carry event attendees and other commuters from RCTC with a special stop at 3 Ave SE, at 5 St SE. This route will operate clockwise all day. It will leave RCTC every 30 minutes starting at 8:30 am. Beginning at 4:00 pm, the 3 Special will leave RCTC every 10 minutes. Then, from 7:30 pm until 9:30 pm, the 3 Special will leave 5 Ave and 3 St SE every 5 minutes. After 9:30 pm, anyone wishing to take an RPT bus to RCTC can use Route 3N, which will be running its normal schedule.
