Effective Monday, January 8, level three of the Downtown Transit Center parking garage will be restricted to legislative parking permit holders only. This restriction will remain in effect through the 2023 legislative session.
A new system to manage parking permits and enforce parking rules is coming in Spring 2024. The new system will be used at all off-street parking facilities in downtown Juneau, including the Marine Parking Garage (MPG) and Downtown Transit Center (DTC) Garage.
The new system uses license plates as virtual permits, allowing customers to purchase monthly/annual parking permits and pay citations online using a credit or debit card. At hourly lots, new pay stations that accept credit cards and coins will replace existing mechanical cash boxes. Customers will also be able to pay for hourly parking directly from their mobile phone. Permits will continue to be available for purchase in person and live customer support will be available 24 hours a day.
Additional information about how to use the new system will be provided soon. Please visit the Parking Improvements project page for the latest updates.

Parking Fee Increase
The costs of monthly and annual parking permits increased on July 1, 2022 and incremental increases will continue the following three years. For more information, read the Parking Fee Changes FAQs here.
Parking fees for the Downtown Transit Center and Marine Parking Garage have been restructured. The costs of monthly and annual parking permits increased on July 1, 2022 and incremental increases will continue the following three years. Parks & Recreation Director George Schaaf presented at the Public Works & Facilities Committee on April 11, 2022. Read his memo and see his presentation on the Parking Management Fund Balance here.
The fees to park at the two garages have not increased for more than a decade, though the cost of operating the facilities continues to rise. Between fiscal years 2015 and 2022, increases in utilities, insurance, maintenance, and contractual services drove a 33% increase in operating costs. Revenue has remained relatively flat since 2015, except for a decline in FY20 due to the pandemic.
The cost for hourly parking at the Marine Parking Garage, Shoppers Lot, and North Franklin Lot is remaining the same at $.75 per hour.
- Permit parking is only available at the Downtown Transit Center parking garage (DTC, 100 Main St.), the Marine Parking Garage (MPG, 290 Marine Way) and may be available seasonally (November – April) at the Marine Park Plaza (Main St. between Marine Park and the Marine Parking Garage.)
- Permits are facility-specific: DTC permits are only valid at the Downtown Transit Center parking garage and MPG Permits are only valid at the Marine Parking Garage.

- Cost for a parking permit is: $77 per month; $847 per year plus tax.

Permit Waitlist Information
At this time, there is a waitlist for the Downtown Transit Center (DTC).
If you’d like to be added to the parking permit waitlist, please contact Parks and Recreation at (907) 586-5226, send an email to to [email protected] or come see us in suite 218 at City Hall.
We will continue to renew existing parking permits in both facilities, although current permit holders must renew their parking permits within five business days of the date of expiration. If a permit is not renewed within five business days and that parking facility is at capacity, the permit holder loses the option to renew that permit. Any citations received for parking with an expired permit will not be dismissed.
