Paid Parking begins Today

After years of planning, paid on-street parking begun in downtown Tacoma today. Friendly ambassadors are out in force to help parkers with the pay stations and answering questions.

Over the next few weeks the availability of parking on-street will be erratic as employees and other long-term parkers move to off-street lots and garages opening up spaces on the street for short-term parkers shopping, eating or doing business in downtown.

Here’s what you can expect:
·      Park for up to 2 hours in one location
·      Pay 75 cents per hour, you can purchase a minimum of 20 minutes for 25 cents
·      Pay to park 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday
·      Stick the parking stub in your window and take your unused time with you anywhere in downtown
