Part of the First Night Monterey experience is taking the First Night bus, and MST makes it easy!
MST BUSES ARE FREE WHEN YOU WEAR YOUR FIRST NIGHT ADMISSION BUTTON*, thanks to the generosity of MST! FNM urges patrons in all Monterey Peninsula cities to ride the bus to First Night.
Note: FNM does not provide valet parking. The FNM footprint is closed to all vehicular traffic, including bicycles (except when walked) and dogs.
If you come by car,
If you choose to ride your bicycle, there is bicycle parking near the shuttle bus stop at Del Monte Center, where you can catch a late-night bus to return home. There are also bicycle racks located throughout downtown Monterey along Alvarado Street - and including larger racks at the Sports Center, near Peet's, near Aquarian bicycles and near Pino's at the end of Portola Plaza, as well as at both wharves. Please be courteous and walk your bike within the FNM footprint. Bicycles are not permitted inside any venue.
Lock your vehicles and keep packages out of sight. First Night is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
For those wearing First Night buttons, free rides are available on all operating MST lines beginning at 3PM. MST will operate a Saturday schedule on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2019.
Use MST RealTime tools (text, phone, or Transit app) for up-to-the-minute bus arrival information. You can also visit : www.mst.org or call 1-888-MST-BUS1 (1-888-678-2871)
