TRANSPORTATION & PARKING
Transportation is a concern for many March participants. We are working with local authorities, including the Morristown Police Department, the Morristown Parking Authority, and the State Department of Transportation to solidify a plan that will make travel as hassle-free as possible for the large turnout we're expecting.
First and foremost, we strongly encourage the use of PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION and car-pooling whenever possible. We are expecting thousands of passionate and determined women and allies to descend upon Morristown on January 20th. Although Morristown is a location that offers multiple parking options, public transportation can eliminate a lot of your hassle. Did you know the train station is an eight minute walk to the Green and a twelve minute walk to Morristown Town Hall?

*Please note that there may be a fee for parking in lots or garages. Parking fees will NOT be suspended. Be sure to check your location upon arrival for fee information, so you are not ticketed.
The Women's March on NJ 2018 will continue to work with local authorities to open up more parking options and we will share those with you as they become available.
As the event nears, we'll let you know if there's a specific area you should head to for handicapped parking areas. Officials will be on site that day to direct to available handicapped parking.
If you are traveling by private bus, whether through a crowdsharing bus company, such as Rally, or through a bus you charter on your own, ALL BUSES WILL BE DROPPING OFF PARTICIPANTS AT THE BACK OF TOWN HALL, OFF OF FRANKLIN STREET. Buses will then be directed by officials to a parking area near the Green for pick up. Please advise your drivers of this. We want to make getting to and leaving the March as smooth as possible for all bus riders!
MOST IMPORTANTLY, no matter how you're getting there, PLEASE PLAN TO ARRIVE AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE. Large crowds are expected, which can cause delays no matter how much planning and preparation occurs. Give yourself plenty of time to arrive and reach our first rallying point at Morristown Town Hall, located at 200 South Street. Our event will begin promptly at 11 a.m. And, above all, travel safely!
Though inspired by the movement that began in January 2017, The Women's March on New Jersey 2018 is not an official affiliate or Sister March of the national Women's March organization.
