Parking: There are Tow Away Zones on many of the streets around the Apple store. Some of them end at 6:00 pm so there is usually a lot of parking places available at that time. Other streets have tow away zones that end at 7:00 pm so be careful.

Parking Meters: There have been changes in the times for parking meters so you need to read the signs and also check the screens on the meter to determine the hours of operation for that particular meter. Some of the meters do not require payments after 6 pm but others do.

The Apple store is also very convenient to public transportation - the Powell Street BART station is close to the Apple store.
