The parking lot for school and charter buses is conveniently located two blocks from the Newport Aquarium (map below). Please use the Bus Parking Pass that was sent with your ticket confirmation to turn into the honor box at the bus parking lot. Drivers must complete the information requested before dropping into the box. We do not provide parking passes for cars or vans and they are not permitted to park in the bus parking lot. It is suggested that cars and vans park in the Newport on the Levee parking garage.
All buses dropping off group and school guests for Newport Aquarium must do so on E. 3rd Street (between Monmouth & Saratoga Street) in front of Star Lanes (before Brio Restaurant). Pull up to the curb as far West as possible without blocking the valet exit. Once dropped off, guests will walk along the valet drive to the stairs or elevators and proceed to the River Walk Level. The Aquarium is to the left of Barnes and Noble.
