Off-Street Parking

Downtown Parking MapOff-street parking provides convenient parking in a protected location. Nearly three-quarters of all off-street spaces are located in decks. The remainder are in parking lots. There are now more than 3,200 off-street parking spaces.

  • Over 3,000 spaces are in three parking decks: 4th/Church, 6th/Cherry and Center City West.

  • At most facilities, hourly rates are $1.00, with a $9 maximum per day.
  • Third-party billing for special event parking is available.
  • The Revenue Office in the Finance Department collects payments for off-street spaces. The Revenue Office is in Bryce A. Stuart Municpal Building, Room 121,
