Traffic into San Rafael shouldn't be too bad, but we hear parking is difficult. Please carpool. Also, if you are getting a ride, please offer to share the cost of gas.
For carpooling from Santa Rosa, meet at 3:00 PM at the Park & Ride lot at Brookwood Ave/Hwy. 12. It's just north of the county fairgrounds under the overpass. Overflow parking is available at the Veterans Building. 215 parking spaces.
For carpooling from Petaluma, meet at 3:15 PM at the Park & Ride at
E. Washington St at Petaluma Fairgrounds (150 spaces).
There is parking under the freeway in central San Rafael if people carpool down there.
Here's a link to download a PDF of the downtown parking lots. It's marked with the Citibank location (red box with an X), and with the kiosk where we'll meet (blue box with an X) - see bottom right corner of the map.
Here is a link to city parking lots in downtown San Rafael:
One of our members says, "we did get our car towed once in San Rafael when we thought we had parked it legally etc. And the rules changed after certain hours. It was a very expensive mistake to make and it wasn't at all clear to us" what they should have done.
Thanks go to Laura and most especially Jenny! for their help with these instructions!
