Where can I park in Downtown Scranton on race morning?

By April 7, 2017

The Steamtown Marathon finishes in Downtown Scranton on N. Washington Avenue between Linden Street and Spruce Street (Courthouse Square). Bus transportation to the starting line also departs from Downtown Scranton about a block from the finish line. Therefore, many runners choose to park Downtown on race morning. All parking meters are free on race day. You can park at any meter that does not have a No Parking sign on it. There are also several Scranton Parking Authority garages that are favorites of Steamtown runners and their families. All are pay to park garages and none have attendants on duty.  They all use automated pay stations. There are two pay-to-park garages on Adams Avenue between Lackawanna Avenue and Spruce Street and one at the corner of Linden Street and South Washington Avenue (enter from Linden Street)   Click here for the 2017 Race Map with Parking Key.
