For commercial buses, please contact the SP+ Parking office at 727-896-2256 or to make parking arrangements in the AL Lang Stadium parking lot. The SP+ Parking staff will discuss parking rates, create the reservation, take payment, and notify city enforcement so the bus is not ticketed.

SP+ Parking staff needs at minimum 2-3 business days’ notice to ensure there are no scheduling conflicts for the parking lot.

If SP+ Parking is unable to accommodate your parking reservation request, alternative parking for commercial buses is to reserve metered street parking spaces near the museum. Reservations must be made at least 3 business days in advance. Parking spaces are approximately 8’ x 22’ and cost $10 per parking space. The parking fee will be added to your balance due and is payable along with your final admission and docent fees. Parking fees are nonrefundable.
