2024 Parking Improvements

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.

ADA Parking

  • ON-STREET: There is no fee or registration for parking in an on-street ADA space, although time is limited to four hours. There is no fee or time limit for parking in a general on-street parking space, unless time is restricted by signage (for example, parking in a 15-minute loading zone.) You must have your ADA placard properly displayed or have an ADA license plate on your vehicle.
  • OFF-STREET HOURLY LOTS & PARKING GARAGES: Anyone parking in an off-street facility must pay to park (either by buying a permit or paying for an hourly space). Handicap parking permits do not provide free parking in facilities where payment is required, including DTC, MPG, Shoppers Lot, and North Franklin Lot. Payment is required regardless of whether the customer has a handicap permit.

  • Electric vehicle charging stations are available at the Marine Parking Garage (MPG) and the Downtown Transit Center Parking Garage (DTC). The EV spaces are only available for electric vehicles that are actively charging, and parking is limited to two consecutive hours of use per day.
    • The Level 3 charger at DTC is free for anyone to use Monday – Friday between 4 p.m. and 8 a.m., and on weekends/holidays. A DTC permit is required Monday – Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Permits are required because the license plate recognition system cannot apply unique rules to individual spaces within the facility.
    • The Level 2 chargers at MPG are free for anyone to use Monday – Friday between 4 p.m. and 8 a.m., and on weekends/holidays. All vehicles must pay to park in the EV spaces Monday – Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. including MPG/DTC permitholders.

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.

Parking Fee Changes FAQs

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.
