Parking Information and Options for Downtown Visitors
During Modern Streetcar Construction


Tucson, Ariz. - May 15, 2012 - It has never been easier to find plenty of accessible and affordable parking for your visit to the many businesses and events in Downtown, on Fourth Avenue and at Main Gate Square.

ParkWise is offering a "construction special" flat rate parking fee at the new Centro Garage (345 E. Congress Street), which greets motorists at the east end of Downtown, and is an easy walk to all destinations on Congress Street and Fourth Avenue.

Parking is just $3, day or night, Sunday-Wednesday, and until 5 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
After 5 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, parking at the Centro Garage is $5. Street parking is free after 5 p.m. weekdays and on weekends Downtown.

The Sun Link Tucson Streetcar construction has not impeded access to either the Pennington Street Garage (110 E. Pennington Street) or the Depot Plaza Garage (45 N. Fifth Avenue). The Pennington Street Garage can be accessed at the Scott Avenue entrance from either direction on Pennington Street. Access Pennington Street from Stone Avenue on the west and Sixth Avenue on the east. Sixth Avenue is now two-way up to Sixth Street, so enter Downtown on southbound Sixth Avenue, and the Pennington Street Garage is on your right at Pennington Street. The Depot Plaza Garage can be accessed from Fifth Avenue and Toole Avenue.

Monthly parking permits for covered parking at the Centro Garage and the Depot Plaza Garage are now more affordable during the duration of the streetcar construction project. A monthly pass at the Centro Garage is now $55, and $65 for a monthly pass at Depot Plaza Garage.

Main Gate Square will validate parking after 5 p.m. every day at the Tyndall Garage, accessible from Fourth Street off of Euclid Avenue on the University of Arizona Campus. The Tyndall Parking Garage is just a short walk to all the shops and restaurants on University Boulevard in Main Gate Square.
