Getting out of park on 1997 Pontiac Firebird

I cant get my firebird out of park is there a release switch or something I can do to at least get it to the shop?

Check to see if you have rear brake lights because if the stop light switch fails you won't be able to release the shifter to get it out of park, Its located on the upper back of your brake pedal
