Monthly Commuter Permits: Permits may be used for daily lot access for those in need of parking while working in the downtown core. Access to parking is provided by an RFID permit card. Permits are assigned to an individual and are non-transferable. Please call the Permit Counter at (805) 564-5656, option 3 if you would like to set up an employer paid group account.

24/7 Access Permit: The 24/7 Parking Permit program was created to optimize the use of parking resources by offering “home garage” permits for downtown residents and businesses in Downtown Parking garages. The permit authorizes the user to park their vehicle for up to two weeks at a time in either the basement of the Granada Garage (Lot 6), or the roof of the Ortega Lot (Lot 10).

Electric Vehicle Permit: The City offers discounted permits which allow the user to park at one of the ChargePoint vehicle chargers which are located on the roof of Lot 6, The Granada Garage. For more information on EV Parking Permits, please view the Electric Vehicle Parking Permits page.

To purchase a Monthly Permit, please apply through our online application portal linked below. Please be prepared to attach a JPEG or PDF image of your valid California Vehicle Registration. Once approved, staff will contact you to complete payment. Please note that permits fees are not pro-rated.

Commuter Lot Permits: Commuter Lot permits are available in the Cota Commuter Lot and the Carrillo Commuter Lot. Permits are available to employees who commute into the downtown core. Access is granted to the Commuter Parking Lots by use of a hangtag on the vehicle’s rearview mirror. Permits are assigned to an individual and are non-transferable. Please call the Permit Counter at (805) 564-5656, option 3 if you would like to set up an employer paid group account.
