The March for Science has arrived! In just 24 hours we will gather to show support for science and call for evidence-based policymaking. This movement has grown to include over 500 cities and millions of science fans around the world!
Here are some last-minute tips to get ready and make the event a success:
Plan Your Trip
Due to the number of people coming to downtown, parking will be very limited. Plan your trip in advance so you’re there on time! It is Earth Day, so please do your part to reduce your impact. Take the bus, VTA light rail, or carpool with friends! Refer to the transportation guide for directions and a trip planning guide. The City of San Jose has a map of blue curb ADA parking here. Our website has a guide for marchers, what to wear, what not to bring, etc. Read More
