Because much of the Southeastern Conference Women’s Basketball Tournament, scheduled for March 6-10, will coincide with regular business hours and Greenville’s normal peak traffic times, the City of Greenville has worked with event officials and the Bon Secours Wellness Arena staff to address issues such as traffic flow and parking that will affect both event attendees and local residents and business owners.
To reduce the amount of vehicular traffic to the Bon Secours Wellness Arena, there will be a free shuttle to transport fans from satellite parking at 20 Tower Drive (across from the Greenville Convention Center) to the arena during the days and times listed below:
Free Satellite Shuttle Schedule
Wednesday, March 6
10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

For fans who drive downtown and prefer to park near the Bon Secours Wellness Arena, event parking will be available at the City’s Church Street Garage at 320 North Church Street for $6 Wednesday through Sunday. For those willing to park farther away, parking will also be available in other City garages at the regular daily rate (including the first hour free), with the exception of the Liberty Square Garage. There will be no daily parking available in the Liberty Square Garage (65 Beattie Place) on weekdays. Visit parking.greenvillesc.gov for a list of City parking facilities, locations and rates.

Additional accessible parking is located in the Church Street Garage. All vehicles requiring accessible parking must have the proper decal displayed from the rearview mirror or have an applicable license plate.
Fans can also utilize Greenlink’s downtown trolley service to get to and from the tournament.
