A new valet service for downtown will initially operate from 3:00 pm. to 2:00 am. Monday through Friday and 9:00 am. to 2:00 am. on weekends.
The service is free although you are encouraged to tip the valets.
You can thank the Downtown Merchants who are providing the funding.
It was originally developed by the greater Main Street Merchants Association, reps for the City of Sarasota and the folks at Pineapple Square, the new downtown mixed-use development.
Here are the five drop-off/pick-up stations:
Main St. and Orange Ave.
Main St. and Lemon Ave.
Main St. and Pineapple Ave.
Main St. and Palm Ave.
Palm Ave. near Caraguilo’s restaurant
The service was launched this week and it is a work in progress. If you have any comments or suggestions you are encouraged to call the Greater Main Street Mechants at 914-366-7040 or
