TISL has a special parking deal at the Public Square Garage, which is across the street from the DoubleTree Hotel and two blocks from the Capitol.

This is the recommended parking garage for all delegates ... those staying at the DoubleTree Hotel and those commuting from Nashville-area colleges.


1. Park at the Public Square Garage, 350 Deaderick Street. Take a parking ticket from the machine.

Important: This is an above-ground garage (see photo). Two blocks away is an underground garage by the same name. Don't be confused.

2. At the Capitol, buy a parking pass from the State Treasurer. TISL accepts cash, checks or credit cards.

One-size-fits-all parking pass: $8 (as of October 2018)

3. When exiting, insert in this order:

  • Parking pass you purchased from the State Treasurer.

  • Parking ticket you received when you entered the garage.

4. Exit the garage
