Option 2 - Lyft and Uber are so inexpensive now that they are competitive with the cost of public transit. Make sure to set up these apps in your phone before the festival (with your credit card information already included) so you don't have to worry about that when you want to get home from the milonga at 3 am!
We have made arrangements for you to park for free at the James Martin School, 3 blocks from the festival venue. It takes about 5 minutes to walk from the parking lot to the venue. At night, a paid shuttle or taxi will be available, if you prefer not to walk.
Parking Lot Address: 3380 Richmond St., Philadelphia, PA 19134
