Montrose Parking Lot
The NIH leases 150 parking spaces at this commuter parking area for the convenience of employees and summer students. This satellite lot alleviates and reduces traffic congestion around the NIH Bethesda campus. NIH employees working at off campus facilities with no shuttle service can park at this satellite lot and catch the NIH Shuttle to campus.
The Montrose Parking Lot is located on Montrose Road and Hoya Street. The parking spaces are located along the northern boundary of the shopping center nearest Montrose Parkway. The designated area will be marked with signage by Montgomery County, "North Bethesda Permits Only", but Montgomery County will continue to recognize and honor the NIH Parking Permits.
To park at this commuter lot, NIH employees must display an "NIH Mirror Hanging Parking Permit" or Summer Student Parking Permit. There is no fee to park at the Montrose Commuter Satellite Lot. Failure to display a proper permit, will result in a ticket being issued by Montgomery County, MD.
Effective July 2, 2012, the satellite parking lot at Mid-Pike Plaza will move to a new location. New location is on Montrose Road and Hoya Street.
