As many Downtown Seattle commuters already know, public transit, ridesharing and carpooling are the fastest, least expensive and most convenient ways to get Downtown on four (or more) wheels. However, we all find times when driving Downtown is necessary.
Although there is a large supply of parking Downtown – on-street, garage and surface lots – that doesn’t necessarily mean that it is easy to find or affordable. Use the links below – which include an interactive map of Downtown parking options, a list of major garages, tips for parking Downtown and more – to make sure your parking experience is hassle-free.
Remember: on-street parking is free nights after 8pm in most areas (6pm in some), and all day on Sundays and holidays!
