During peak periods, e.g. school holidays and public holidays, both the ARTIS car park and multi-storey car parks and roads in the neighbourhood fill up quickly. It is therefore a good idea to travel by public transport on peak days. That way you'll spend less time in traffic jams and more time enjoying ARTIS.
