Parking & Shuttle Services - Lancaster, PA

Here is the very latest information about parking and shuttle services at the AQS Quilt Show in Lancaster, Pannsylvania.

It will be easy to park your car and jump on the complimentary Express Shuttles to get to the Lancaster County Convention Center and Liberty Place Conference Center where all of the quilts and vendors are located. Two parking lots are available for visitors to the quilt show: Liberty Place (313 West Liberty Street, Lancaster, PA 17603), and Burle Business Park (1000 New Holland Ave, Lancaster, PA, 17601). Parking at each of these lots is $5 per car per day. Look for the AQS Parking signs.

Look for these blue buses Wednesday - Friday, and School Buses on Saturday.
Each bus will be marked with the route it will travel.

Park & Ride Parking Lots with Complimentary Shuttle Service: Express Shuttles will transport attendees and vendors at no charge from the Liberty Place and Burle Business parking lots to and from the Lancaster County Convention Center. Shuttle hours begin Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. and conclude at 9:00 p.m. daily. The Saturday shuttle service will use school buses and run from 7:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The Express Shuttle pick up and drop off location is on King Street in front of Penn Square Grille (lobby level of the Lancaster Mariott). The Shuttle Stop at Liberty Place is at the end of Liberty Street (AQS Shuttle Stop signage will be posted). Look for the Shuttle Stop signs in the parking lot at the Burle Business Park lot. A $5.00 daily fee per car will be charged to park at either lot. A handicapped accessible bus will be available at the Liberty Place parking lot only.

The Burle Business Park lot, located at 1000 New Holland Pike, will be used as a satellite parking lot for ALL visiting motorcoaches and charters.

Parking – Vendors: Vendors at the Liberty Place Conference Center will be parked at their location. All vendors for the Lancaster County Convention Center will be park at the Burle Business Park lot at 1000 New Holland Pike.

Hotel Shuttle for Overnight Guests: Guests who booked lodging through the Lancaster County Passkey Reservation Center will receive a complimentary shuttle pass for the duration of their stay. Overnight guests must show their Passkey/shuttle pass to use one of the four hotel shuttle vehicles (Passkey shuttle passes will be distributed by the hotels at check-in to those whose name appears as registered guests - if you have any additional people staying with you, be sure to call (800 PA DUTCH) Passkey to add their names so they will get a shuttle pass too). Hotel shuttle pick up and drop off will be in front of the Lancaster County Convention Center Queen Street Entrance.
