Parking at the Zeiterion Garage
Event Parking | Special Rate
Parking is available in the Zeiterion Garage at a flat rate of $4. Attendants will be collecting CASH ONLY upon entrance from 6pm-8pm, and the exit gate will be open for departure. Parking is also available on the streets.
The new self-serve system requires drivers to take a ticket when entering. When ready to leave, drivers will use that same ticket to pay for parking at one of two kiosks located at the Purchase St. pedestrian entrance or near the garage entrance. Kiosks require you to pay before getting into the car. Once drivers pay at the kiosk, they receive another ticket to raise the gate when exiting. There will not be an attendant at the gate.
