Naval Support Activity Bethesda (NSAB), in partnership with Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC), is offering off-site parking for staff at WRNMMC.
The parking facility, located at 6720 Rockledge Drive in Bethesda near Montgomery Mall, is about 35 minutes away from WRNMMC.
Two hundred spaces are available for WRNMMC and other NSAB tenant staff, according to Ryan Emery, NSAB transportation program coordinator.
Parking is available from 5 a.m. Monday through 5 a.m. Saturday, and there is an attendant and roaming security in the garage, said Jeff Miller, transportation program manager at NSAB.
Staff members issued a brown hanging tag and key fob for the garage guaranteed parking, Miller said.
Although there is no charge for parking in the garage, to get to WRNMMC from the parking facility people must pay to take either the MetroBus (J-2 Line) or RideOn (47 and 96).
The bus comes approximately every 15-20 minutes during the week.
RideOn routes take passengers from the garage to the Metro rail stations; the RideOn 47 to Bethesda and 96 to Grosvenor.
People already in receipt of any other placard - red, green, purple or yellow - are ineligible to participate in this program, Miller added.
