Program Parking

Since the 9th avenue parking deck will be permit only, all of our programs like swim school will be able to park in Lot 5A but will need to pay for their parking. The 16th Street Deck will also be open on weekends for free through the back entrance. Street parking on 10th Avenue is available as well on weekends but is very limited.

Blazer Express

All UAB Students and Employees can get a lift with the Blazer Express and take the South Green Route to the Campus Recreation Center bus stop or the Blue Route to the Lot 5A bus stop for a workout during the day without the hardship of driving and parking.

The South Green Route Operates:
