"FREQUENT PARKER" DISCOUNT CARD

The Frequent Parker Card (FPC) is a 50% off discount card that may be used in both Downtown 5-story garages located near 4th/A and 4th/C St. The FPC is ideal for those who frequent Downtown, yet don't visit daily. The normal hourly rate in these garages is $1.00 p/hr.  When you use the card, the rate you pay becomes $0.50 p/hr. The FPC costs $25 and is a ONE-TIME fee required to obtain the card. Stop by the Parking Services office (1033 C Street @ Fifth Ave.) to get started. No application is required.

Those who work Downtown on a part-time basis love these cards!
