Parking for the Detroit Grand Prix

There will be one parking structure within the venue available to the public. The Franklin Garage costs $75 per day, and parking passes can be purchased here.

Due to parking demands, there will be several surface lots and alternate parking structures within the downtown area for general public event parking.

The following parking structures within the event space will not be dedicated to public parking:

  • Beaubien Garage
  • Center Garage
  • Millender Garage
  • Port Atwater Garage
  • River East Garage

If you choose to park further away from the event venue, taking the Detroit People Mover is recommended, as it will take you directly to the venue. Fees for the People Mover are $0.75 one way. These fees are cash only, and there are no ATMs in the stations.

If you are near the Qline, the public train will provide free rides for those attending. You can view the Detroit QLine Map to see where is the best spot to park. Those using the public train are to get off at Congress stop No. 1 -- which is the closest spot to the event venue for riders.

If you plan on-street parking, make sure to have the Park Detroit app on your smartphone. The app will allow you to pay for your parking spot and show how much time you have in your spot and options to extend parking time.

For those looking for ride-share or bussing locations, there will be three designated spots outside of the racing venues for drop-offs.
