Free parking available for downtown Nashville workers

Downtown Nashville workers have a little-known free parking option.
Finding an inexpensive monthly parking spot in downtown Nashville is a daunting task for some downtown workers.
"The biggest problem is the price, and there are monthly options, but those keep rising and rising, Sam Rosselli said.
Rasheedah Pardue is from Nashville and said it's hard to afford to park downtown.
"It's very difficult to find an affordable spot," Pardue said. "I had to pay a couple hundred dollars a month to park and it was going to go up from there."
LOT A and E next to Nissan Stadium is available Monday through Friday between the hours of 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. for downtown workers only.
The "free" option means, workers can park in the lots and simply walk across the bridge into town. The distance is 0.8 of a mile. The program has been around for years, but word is quickly spreading among downtown workers who are new-to-town.
Workers have another option to pay $30 a month to ride a shuttle to and from work across the Woodland Street bridge.
You can get a free downtown worker only parking permit at Parkitdowntown.com or at the Nashville Downtown Partnership office at 4th Avenue South and Commerce Street.
