Parking Tips and Rates
Once you enter the lot, park your vehicle first – this ensures there is an available space prior to you paying (there are no refunds). Memorize your license plate number or take a picture of it, then go to one of eight kiosks located throughout the lot to pre-pay your parking fee.
"Extend-By-Phone" option is available, but you must opt-in by providing your cell phone number at the time of purchase. A service charge for use will apply.
If you’re parking for several days you can save money by purchasing a 30 day pass for $36 versus 30 multiple days at $4/day. Example: if you need 35 days, a 60 day pass is cheaper, and so on.
The Pay-On-Foot kiosk displays the following options:
- Up to 12 hours - $2
- Up to 24 hours - $4
- Multiple days - $4 each day (i.e. 10 days x $4 = $40, 11 days x $4 = $44, and so on; see pass rates below)
- 30 day pass - $36 (buy this pass when purchasing 10-30 days)
- 60 day pass - $72 (buy this pass when purchasing 31-60 days)
- 90 day pass - $108 (buy this pass when purchasing 61-90 days)
If you plan to leave your car longer than 30 days, please call (303) 342-4629 to make arrangements. The City and County of Denver considers vehicles left over 30 days as abandoned and are subject to ticketing and towing.
