- parking and public transportation
In Fresno, you can park on the first floor of the parking structure at O Street and Inyo Streets. Bring your time stamped parking stub with you to the jury room for validation. When you leave the garage, this validated receipt ticket will open the gate for you when placed in the machine at the garage exits.
Most buses and Amtrak stop within two to five blocks of the courthouse.
In Sacramento, please do not park on the street or at a parking meter. You will not have time to leave the court to pay the meter and the court is not responsible for parking violations. Parking is also available at the Downtown Plaza at 5th and J streets. The Amtrak station has limited parking and is located at the corner of 5th and I Streets. Please be sure not to park in the 2hr. limited area. You MUST bring your parking ticket with you to the jury office to receive parking validation. If you park in a lot that does not accept our validation, to be reimbursed, you must pay for your parking and mail your receipt within one week of your of jury service. Please be sure to print your name on the back of the parking receipt clearly.
Alternate transportation to the courthouse is also available. For Sacramento residents the light rail stops at 7th & K Streets (Saint Rose of Lima Station) and the Amtrak station (located directly across the street from the Federal Courthouse).
