Affordable Parking

More Parking, Less Circling

Downtown Seattle faced significant loss of street-level parking in 2012 when construction began on the new waterfront tunnel. To help mitigate the impact, a diverse team of public and private stakeholders – including DSA and Commute Seattle – came together to create a new low-cost parking program offering visitors $3 per hour and $7 per hour flat rates at 15 garages. The program, promoted via, helps drivers take advantage of affordable rates in participating garages. Approximately 50,000 people use the mobile web app each month.
