--There is on-street parking available, but many people don't know about the two parking structures maintained by the Missoula Parking Commission. All are affordable, and are free evenings and weekends. Central Park is located at 128 West Main, and the Bank Street Structure is adjacent to the Higgins Street Bridge and may be approached via Pattee Street across from the Holiday Inn.
--Plan ahead and Bike, Walk, Bus: Missoula In Motion has a ton of resources to help you enjoy a car-free evening. They have a bike map to help you find safe routes, and they offer incentives and goodies.
--Both the University of Montana and Missoula Free Cycles have bike loan programs, if you just want to borrow a bike for the evening. Perfect for out-of-town visitors, or anyone who wants to give bicycling a try without having to buy a bike.
--If you are a student, you can take the U-Dash, a late night bus service that runs every half hour from 7:00 pm to 2:25 AM! Students can ride Mountain Line for free, to get downtown before 5pm , when Gallery Night begins. The numbers 1, 8 , and 12 all pass by campus.
