Employee Parking & Alternatives

Those working downtown have several options to get to work on time! 

Employee Permit

Designated employee parking has been identified, including the Phoenix Avenue lot and some on-street spaces on Agassiz, Verde, Elden, Cherry and West Aspen.  The monthly fee is $45 and permits are awarded on an annual basis.

    

 

ECOPASS

PARK FLAG has complimentary EcoPasses available for those that work downtown.  Those receiving an EcoPass through PARK FLAG may not have an employee parking permit.  Learn more about NAIPTA and Mountain Line service here:   http://mountainline.az.gov

How much will Employee Permits Cost?

$45/month. 

 

What happens if I don’t want to get an employee permit?

Not interested in paying $45/month?  That's ok!  There are several options available:

  • If you plan to drive and park your car, you may park in public parking spaces outside of the Pay to Park area, i.e., north of Cherry Ave., west of Humphreys, or spaces on the south side that are off commercial streets.

  • Consider taking Mountain Line.  Free bus passes are available through ParkFlag - application is available HERE.  Bus service is convenient, reliable and offer amenities, such as a Guaranteed Ride Home if the need arises.  Check out NAIPTA’s website HERE (link).

  • Consider riding your bike.  The Flagstaff Downtown Business Alliance is installing 10 new bike racks throughout downtown.

  • Form a carpool or vanpool.  Incentive pricing will be offered.

Is my license plate really my permit?

Yes.  There are no physical permits – no stickers or window hangers. 

 

A benefit to this system is you may enter as many license plates as you want on the same permit.  This means that you can park different cars, even rental cars, on the same permit.  However, only one of the cars can park (use the permit) at any one time.

 

Am I guaranteed a parking space if I get an Employee Permit?

No.  Employees will have designated areas to park.  The number of spaces are limited which, again, is one reason we are now managing parking.

 

Are employee permits valid every day of the year?

No.  Employee permits are not valid when the Armed Forces, Fourth of July, and Holiday Lights parades are scheduled.
