Parking is even available just across the Ohio River including some free street parking. A quick walk over one of two bridges and you’ll find yourself right at the stadium.

Southbank Shuttle – Looking for a deal on parking, but not interested a long walk? The Southbank shuttle has several stops in both Newport and Covington, only charges $1 per ride, and offers service every 15-minutes. Click here for a map of the shuttle’s route.

Street Parking – Drivers headed to GABP looking to save a few dollars can find cheap or free street parking on 5th St in Newport.

Career Fair Testimonials

Cincinnati -- Aerospace recruiter
The variety of employers was good. I have never seen a career fair with so many industries represented. Very well thought out with the veteran in mind.
Cincinnati -- National Guard E-6
I was impressed with the security and the facility -- the indoor, air-conditioned club deck of a major league ballpark! I felt comfortable speaking to company representatives, even if I was not specialized in what they were looking for. It opened my eyes to areas I can grow my interests in.
Cincinnati -- Air Force E-4
