Take exit 170B off Route 81 (Rt. 115S/Wilkes-Barre Exit). You'll pass a Red Roof Inn on your right. You are now on Route 309 (a.k.a. the North Cross Valley Expressway). Stay in the two left lanes and then take EXIT 2. At the bottom of the exit ramp is a traffic light at a T-intersection. Make a left onto Wilkes-Barre Boulevard. At the first traffic light (Conyngham Ave.) go straight. Continue straight through lights at Butler, Scott and Coal Streets. At the next light, make a right onto Market Street. Continue straight ahead through lights at Pennsylvania Boulevard and Washington Street. At the next light you'll be facing Public Square and you will enter a traffic circle by making a right. Stay in the right lane. Go to the very next light (i.e., 1/4 of the way around the traffic circle) and turn right onto North Main Street.
 
Immediately look for a 5-story parking garage on your left. Look for a horizontal brown and white "ENTRANCE" sign, and turn left into that driveway. Follow the green and white arrow directing you up a small ramp on your right and into the public parking garage.
