    Due to the anticipated traffic you may want to coordinate with VCDL to try to make a connection with one of the VCDL buses.

    Yea dont think you're just going to drive downtown and park somewhere and walk.

    I talked to the bus line that I had planned on using and they are worried with all of the blocked off streets and traffic if they're even going to be able to get all these busses down there.

    Good luck but I agree with HSO itd be better to meet up at one of the bus "depots" and ride it in than try and drive your own car down there.

    as it turned out, when we got to the diamond parking line, we found a line of cars over a mile long to get in. we found another place to park, and simply rode a city bus downtown. buses were probably 50% capacity and primarily locals on their monday morning commute. it only cost $1.50 to ride and was very quick and dropped us off right behind the capital. worked out perfect. my guess is we'd still be 1/2 mile from diamond (where VCDL had arranged shuttles for people) if we'd waited instead of taking a bus. definitely no way to park downtown though.
