Parking is Easier Than Ever in Downtown Tucson

May 15, 2012

It’s never been easier to go Downtown, and to find plenty of accessible, affordable parking to start your visit to the many businesses and events Downtown, on 4th Avenue, and at Main Gate Square.

ParkWise is offering a “construction special” flat rate at the new Centro Garage, 345 East Congress Street, which greets motorists at the east end of Downtown, and is an easy walk to all destinations on Congress Street and on 4th Avenue. Parking is just $3 a day, day or night, from Sunday through Wednesday, and during the day until 5:00pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. After 5:00pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, parking at Centro is still just $5.

On-street parking is free after 5:00pm weekdays and on weekends Downtown.

The streetcar construction has not impeded access to either the Pennington Street Garage (110 E. Pennington St.) or Depot Plaza Garage (45 N. 5th Ave.). Pennington Street Garage can be accessed at its Scott Avenue entrance from either direction of Pennington Street. Access Pennington Street from Stone Avenue on the west and 6th Avenue on the east. Sixth Avenue is now two-way up to 6th Street, so enter Downtown on southbound 6th Avenue, and the Pennington Garage is on your right at Pennington Street. Depot Plaza can be accessed from 5th Avenue and Toole.

Monthly parking permits for covered parking at Centro Garage and Depot Plaza Garage are now more affordable, during the duration of the streetcar construction project. A monthly pass at Centro is now just $55, and a monthly pass at Depot Plaza costs $65.

Main Gate Square will validate parking after 5:00pm every day at the Tyndall Parking Garage, accessible from 4th Street off of Euclid. The Tyndall Garage is a very short walk to all the shops and restaurants on University Blvd. in Main Gate Square.
