The National Cherry Blossom Festival is one of the largest events for motorcoach activity in Washington, DC.  The District Department of Transportation’s Guide for Charter Buses & Motor Coach Operators During the National Cherry Blossom Festival includes information which lets drivers:

  • Know that buses may need a trip permit
  • Know where to park
  • Know how to get to parking locations
  • Know what to do once parked
  • Know who to contact about questions or concerns

A detailed map of tour bus drop-off and pick-up locations for the National Cherry Blossom Festival, please click here.  A full list and map of motorcoach parking locations can be found at

*Please note that these areas are dedicated for active passenger loading and unloading, not parking. There is very limited curbside parking capacity in the District and operators are encouraged to book off-street parking in advance. If you have any questions about operating a motorcoach in the District during the Festival, please call the Motorcoach Operators Hotline on 1.855.67.BUSES (28737).
