Knoxville offers limited free parking for Vols

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- After paying those high ticket prices, a few thousand Tennessee football fans may be able to score free parking.

The city of Knoxville will be offering no-charge parking on game days in two downtown locations -- the 842-space State Street garage and the 700-space Market Square garage.

Both are served by $3-roundtrip shuttles to 102,000-seat Neyland Stadium.

City spokesman Randy Kenner said Monday the city got a favorable response from fans when it tried this last season. Both garages either filled to capacity or were close to it.

Other downtown garages will charge $5 to $30 per car.
