Parking Rules
Regulations -Parking For Persons With Disabilities
Parking spaces for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) are available in City lots and next to the elevator in every city deck. A valid, State Motor Vehicle Division issued "Parking for PWDs" hangtag or license plate must be properly displayed when parking in a designated "Parking for PWDs" space. The hangtag or license plate does not exempt the PWD from parking fees.

The individual to whom the hangtag or plates were issued must be in the vehicle when it is parked and when the vehicle leaves the parking space. (Do not operate your vehicle with the tag hanging from the rearview mirror; the hangtag could obstruct your vision and you are subject to receiving a moving traffic violation.)

Parking Rates
Hourly parking rates are posted on the parking rate signs at the entrance of each facility.

Monthly parking is available at selected facilities. Call Lanier Parking System at (919) 680-2481 for information on rates, locations and availability.

Special Events - A $3 maximum event parking fee per use, except the North Garage (located at the American Tobacco Campus, which is $5).  $3 is the maximum cost to park in the cashier operated section of the ramps during staffed events.
Events are staffed based on estimated attendance and space availability in a given facility.  Reentry is not permitted and refunds are not available for event cancellations and/or scheduling changes.

Special Parking Programs

Prepay Stamps - Reduced rates are obtained by purchasing prepaid stamps at the parking office at 326 East Chapel Hill St. Reentry is not permitted with stamps and stamps are non-refundable. For information, ask a cashier or call Lanier Parking System at (919) 680-2481.
