A bus drop-off area is available to better serve our visitors. It is located alongside the Old Cathedral parking lot, with access from Memorial Drive. Parking for buses and recreational vehicles is available in the privately-owned parking lots on the south end of the Arch grounds at 2nd and Poplar Streets. Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard, on the east side of the Arch, can also be used as a bus drop-off area.
Bus, RV and oversize cab parking is available along Leonor K. Sullivan Drive from south of the Poplar Street Bridge to the flood wall. This is approximately 1/3 of a mile from the Gateway Arch. This parking area is outside of the park's jurisdiction like other city owned or commercial parking areas.
