How to get around Madison

Madison has many options to get you to and around downtown. Taxis and rental cars are plentiful at the airport. Madison has a public transportation system, and ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft are also available.

Most Madison hotels, including the Hilton Madison Monona Terrace, have shuttles to and from the airport, as well. Please contact your hotel for details on booking a shuttle.

Additionally, you can rent bicycles through B-cycle in downtown Madison. For more information on transportation to and around Madison, visit the Greater Madison Convention and Visitors Bureau Web site.


Please note downtown Madison has many concurrent road construction projects. Parts of East Wilson Street (the road in front of the Monona Terrace) is down to one traffic lane, and the 200 block of Pinckney is closed. If you park in the Government East garage, please note only the Wilson Street entrance is open.

Monona Terrace features a 300-space, cashier-operated parking structure. Parking for the conference will cost $16. Short-term and all-day public parking is provided throughout downtown Madison in various city-owned structures and lots for up to $1.80 an hour. Private parking in the Block89 Ramp is available within two blocks of the conference for $27 a day. On-street parking is also available for short-term parking.

Bus parking and passenger drop-off is accessible from the Wilson Street entrance to Monona Terrace.

Handicapped-accessible parking stalls are available at no cost for Monona Terrace event parking on the upper drive-through/drop-off level near the parking meter areas on both sides of Monona Terrace. Handicapped-accessible parking stalls are available for a charge on the lower parking level in front of the Level Three entrance. Curb cuts are located in close proximity to accessible parking and make travel to the building convenient.
