Make Your Plan for Indy

We are working with two major parking providers in the downtown Indianapolis area who have arranged special rates for the National Eucharistic Congress. Parking passes are available to purchase for single days or for the entirety of the event. We highly encourage you to secure parking by purchasing a pass ahead of time. Consider carpooling with friends, family, or fellow parishioners to save on parking costs. Please read the information below and select an option that best suits your parking needs.

Wherever you choose to park, be sure to remove all personal items from your vehicle. The NEC is not responsible for theft or damage to vehicles.

Buses

Bus Loading/Unloading

The designated loading and unloading zone for charter buses and school buses is the South Lot of Lucas Oil Stadium. Bus loading and unloading is not permitted in any other location. There is no fee to access this lot, but you must request a bus pass to display in your bus window in order to access it. All buses must enter the South Lot from Capitol Avenue using Gate 8 and follow the directions of parking lot personnel. Only school buses and charter buses with an NEC bus pass will be admitted to this lot. The lot is strictly for loading and unloading only. Buses cannot remain parked in this lot and drivers must stay with their buses at all times. Bus lot passes must be requested no later than Monday, July 1st. Bus passes will be sent via email the week prior to the event.

Bus Parking

Buses needing to park downtown must purchase a parking pass. The Gate Ten lot has bus parking available, and the cost for buses is $75 per day. See below for more information on how to purchase a pass at this lot. Personal items should not be left unattended on the bus. The NEC is not responsible for theft or damage to vehicles.

Rental Bus Transportation

If you have not yet secured a charter bus for your group and are interested in using a local Indianapolis company, Luxury Worldwide Transportation is ready to assist you! Transportation assistance is available to all areas of the continental U.S. Due to the size of the event and limited bus inventory, it is recommended that you make your reservations as soon as possible.
