Parking Information


If you have Jury Duty at the Yellowstone County Courthouse
Please come to 217 N. 27th Street Billings, MT 59101


District Court will validate parking for Park 2 and Park 3 parking garages:

Park 2 Garage: 2651 1st Avenue North, located between 2nd Ave N. & 1st Ave N. behind the Wells Fargo Building.

Park 3 Garage: 210 N. 27th St, located on 27th next to the Court House & Police Dept. Between 2nd & 3rd.

Please bring your parking stub with you to court for validation. To avoid the possibility of receiving a ticket for parking in a reserved spot, you MUST park in a parking spot that is labeled HOURLY OR HOTEL GUEST. Unfortunately, we cannot reimburse you for parking violations. Handicapped Parking is located on the East side of the Courthouse as well as in front of the North Entrance of the Courthouse. Please note that if you have a Handicap sticker or permanent Handicap License, the City of Billings allows you to use ANY on street parking for free at any time with the exception of emergency and loading zones.



If you have Jury Duty at the Lincoln Center
Please come to 415 N 30th St, Billings, MT 59101

We strongly advise to NOT park in the parking lot of the Lincoln Center as your car could be towed. Also, do not park at a two hour meter, as there is no guarantee that you would be able to feed the meter, which could result in a parking ticket.

Parking is available at the Transwestern parking garage for the Jury Selections taking place at the Lincoln Center. The parking garage is located right across the street from the Lincoln Center at 515 North 31st Street, with entrances on both North 31st Street and 6th Avenue North. Parking works the same as parking at the normal City parking garage:

  • Jurors will obtain a parking ticket from the garage's machine upon entrance.
  • Jurors will receive a parking voucher from the bailiffs at the Lincoln Center.
  • When exiting the garage, jurors will put their parking ticket into the machine first and then put their parking voucher into the machine second. The arm will rise upon payment authorization.
