What we do

Parking is an integral part of life in San Rafael. Not only do our employees interact with people every day, but parking is part of the life blood of a city, and no city can be successful without sufficient parking capacity and a clear perspective on how best to manage it.

Our Division provides safe and convenient parking with courteous, and professional service. We accept payments & handwritten appeals, issue monthly parking spots, and process requests like abandoned vehicle tows and "No Parking" signs/meter bag reservations, at our downtown office.

Parking Services has moved!

The Parking Services Division office has moved to it’s new location at 1033 C Street.  The Division’s business hours remain the same, open Monday through Friday, 9am-4:30pm.  The move was necessary in order to make way for the construction of our new Public Safety Center.  The parking lot previously located at Fifth & D Street is now closed to the public effective September 11, 2017.
