If you are having reservations about attending the 2019 USA West in Boise because of the “parking garage” expense, well we have reached out and found “free parking” on the City bus line.  There is an Albertson’s Market close to the Grove Center where you can purchase a bus pass for $10 and it allows unlimited trips.  So, you can drop your passengers at the Boise Convention Center, drive from 850 W Front St. to the Cathedral of the Rockies, 717 N 11th St, catch the bus and the driver will have you back at the Convention in a matter of minutes!
