Commuter parking

Hey all,
I have been commuting to downtown on my bike for a year and now the garage where i have always parked for free has taken away my spot. does anyone know of a free parking spot downtown? preferably close to the theatre district?

Thanks for your comments and help!
Happy riding!

Did you use to park in Walker @ Main garage? I rode my bike in this morning and I found out they did the same

Have you found another spot?

Aren't y'all really worried about theft?

I couldn't think straight with my bike in commuter parking.

try researching texas and houston sidewalk laws. i doubt you can park on sidewalks in downtown but its legal to park on sidewalks through most cities in texas as long as you don't block the walkway and are so many feet from a building. again though, city laws vary, and i am not familiar with laws that pertain to downtown houston.

Depends on what you ride I guess and how much you have to pay to park a car per month. Not to mention not waiting to get out of a parking garage behind cars.

there is abig white building a few blocks away, Louisiana and Walker I think

I see bikes parked out front all the time....but it's not covered.

Remember there is the "Green" shuttle now, it loops around downtown every 10 min and is free.

I saw that the chevron parking garage has tons of motorcyle parking. Does anyone know if it is for chevron employees only?

I commuted and parked there and I don't work at C, it was tenants of the buildings connected to the crown plaza, w that said, they don't really check. But if you're bike gets stolen there I doubt you'd have any recourse.
