Parking for Staff, Artists, and Tenants

Patron Parking

For patron parking, please see this page.


Free First

There is a fair amount of street parking in Midtown, much of which is free. Be careful though; some of this street parking is only good for certain times of the day. Travis and Milam for instance must be clear for rush hour. Please check the parking signs. The easiest street parking is on the East/West streets like Francis and Berry. 

The other free lot for MATCH Tenants/Staff/Artists is the north lot of South Main Baptist Church on Main Street. We have an arrangement with the church that allows MATCH Tenants/Staff/Artists to park there for free and your car can stay there all day. That lot is just south of the 3800 apartment building across Truxillo Street. The train runs on Main Street and that side of Main, the west side, is fairly nice going past the Big Top, Double Trouble, and Natachees. PLEASE PUT A PIECE OF PAPER ON YOUR DASH THAT SAYS MATCH PARKING.

Closer with a cost


Close to the MATCH is the Mid-Main Garage directly to the south across Holman. This garage is accessible through Travis St. or Holman St. and is open 24 hours.

Using a GPS? We have found that inputting 3505 Travis St. into your GPS or phone will take you to the entrance of the parking garage on Travis St.

Mid-Main has two surface lots. One lot is located at the southeastern corner of Main and Holman, directly to the south of Trinity Church. This lot is available all day on weekdays and Saturday, and after 2 PM on Sunday. The other lot can be found at the southeastern corner of Fannin and Winbern. This lot is open to the public. Both of these lots have their own pay station where patrons can pay to park. Parking can range between $3 to $7, depending on the hour of the day. Cash only. 

If a parking attendant is present, they should be wearing a Mid-Main shirt or vest on, and will collect your money and hand you a parking voucher to place on your dashboard. If no attendant is present, you will pay the cash box located near the entrance to the lot.


Accessible parking is available at the Mid-Main parking garage. Parking spots designated for accessible parking are located at all entrances of the parking garage. 

Patrons can also be dropped off on the Travis St. side of the MATCH through the curbside drop off zone. 

Take the Metro

If none of these appeal to you, you might consider taking the light rail which stops a half-block South of MATCH on Main Street. It is the easiest cheapest way to get to MATCH.
