Free overnight parking in all City-owned parking garages continues through Friday, September 7. Late night pay resumes the evening of Saturday, September 8. While Flood Emergency Parking is in effect, there is no fee to park in cashiered sections of City-owned parking garages from 9:00 pm – 7:00 am.

Vehicles parked before 9:00 pm or after 7:00 am will be charged the hourly rate for the additional time parked.

Residents in impacted areas can also buy a short-term (1-2 week) permit to park in a City parking garage during flood conditions in the isthmus. The passes provide guaranteed availability, unlimited 24/7 access, and a significant discount from the hourly rate. Permits cost $7.00 per day. You can choose the dates you would like the permit to be valid, and choose one of these parking locations: Government East Garage, State Street Capitol Garage, Capitol Square North Garage, Overture Center Garage, and State Street Campus Garage.

You can also park for longer than the 48-hour time limit in City parking garages.

The City will relax the Residential Parking Permit (RP3) parking enforcement for RP3 permit holders during the flood emergency.

Contact the Parking Utility main office at (608) 266-4761 for more information. Offices are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm.
