There have been three times as many bus parking permits requested for the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., on Saturday than for President-elect Donald Trump‘s inauguration on Friday, according to multiple reports.

As of Thursday, Jan. 12, 393 charter bus permits had been requested for the inauguration later this week, City Councilman Charles Allen told BuzzFeed News.

All of the city’s 1,200 available charter bus parking spaces at RFK Stadium have been filled for the Women’s March, scheduled for Jan. 21. There could be more buses coming for the march and parking in other locations, Allen said.

“While the demand for bus parking seems significantly less than for previous inaugurations, the District is well prepared and will be ready for all visitors and guests making their way here,” Allen told BuzzFeed.

“As the nation’s capitol, D.C. is no stranger to major events, and we are ready to provide a safe experience for everyone and to protect their First Amendment rights in the process — including the large crowds expected for the Women’s March on Washington.”
