Buy Lot Permits


Please note that parking is sold by the calendar-month only, and is not pro-rated. Your permit allows for access to permit-only lots, and an unlimited number of entries and exits from any of the eight marked Central Avenue lots, resulting in a reduced rate from the regular daily charges. Please be aware of this before purchasing a permit later in the month, as it may cost less to park by the day, and no refunds will be given.
