Gainesville’s Regional Transit System will open its first official Park-n-Ride facility on Monday at the new Walmart Supercenter off Northwest 34th Street, just south of U.S. 441.

Starting Monday, commuters may park their vehicles in the designated park-n-ride area within the Walmart parking lot and ride RTS Route 8 to the University of Florida and Shands at UF. There are 43 parking spaces available, and there is no charge for using the spaces.

“RTS receives a number of calls requesting Park-n-Ride facilities each year,” said Chip Skinner, RTS spokesperson. “We are excited to offer this service to those commuting into Gainesville for work and recreation.”

Visit the RTS website or call 334-2600 for Route 8 schedule information.
