Yes, parking is a baffling problem. There
are only 3,6o0 parking spaces in downtown
Omaha, and 28,000 motorists seek them
every day. Eut unless you need your car
for business purposes, the parking problem
needn’t bother you. Ride the Street Cars
and Buses to and from work and on shop
ping trips. It’s EASIER on your nervous
system, KINDER on your pocketbook, and
QUICKER if you consider the usual “block
after-block” hunt for parking space.
