Employee Parking & Alternatives
Those working downtown have several options to get to work on time!
Designated employee parking has been identified, including the Phoenix Avenue lot, as well as the new W. Aspen and W. Cherry lots, and some on-street spaces on Leroux, Birch, Agassiz, Verde, Elden, Cherry and West Aspen. Click HERE to see a map with Employee Parking locations. The monthly fee is $10, and you can purchase by the month or annually.
As a downtown employee, you can park AND ride by getting a ParkFlag employee parking permit and a FREE Mountain Line bus pass. You have the power to choose what works best for your commute each day! Benefits include:
You choose which day to drive your car or take the Mountain Line bus
The Mountain Line pass is good on all routes at all times
Guaranteed Ride Home program means you won't be stuck if you have an emergency.
Download the Mountain Line's new transit app for information on bus routes and times HERE (need to have your device's location services turned on).
Bike racks are located throughout Downtown on almost every block.
Route 66 allows free 2 hour parking Monday - Saturday from 7am - 8pm. All other times, parking on Route 66 is free and time unlimited.

How much will Employee Permits Cost?
What happens if I don’t want to get an employee permit?
Not interested in paying $10/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 Mountain Line's website HERE.
Consider riding your bike. The Flagstaff Downtown Business Alliance recently installed 10 new bike racks throughout downtown.
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.
The link to fill out your Employee Permit information can be found by clicking HERE. It's easy! Simply create an account and log in. Select "Employee Monthly" or "Employee Annually" and click "View." Select "Zone" (north or south) and complete the rest of the required information.
Note: You will need to attach 2 current paystubs or a letter from your employer verifying employment.
Once you select "Check Out," ParkFlag staff will verify information and send a link for payment.
