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.
*On December 31 MST will provide service FREE beginning at 3PM for those First Nighters who have their FNM button! On New Year's Eve, buses follow a Saturday schedule. Visit www.mst.org or call 1-888-MST-BUS1 (1-888-678-2871) for route and schedule information.
