Parking rate increases are part of the new budget

Parking Rate Increase & Extended Enforcement Hours

Enforcement hours will expand, including Sundays, effective November 6

During its FY24 budget discussions, the St. Augustine City Commission voted to approve increased parking rates for the Historic Downtown Parking Facility (parking garage) and extending the hours of parking enforcement throughout the City.

Rates for the parking garage will increase from $15 to $20 per vehicle, per entry, during peak parking times.  However, there will be changes to the hours in which certain special rates will apply.  For example, after 5:00pm, during off-peak times, the rate will drop to $5 per vehicle, per entry.

The peak and off-peak times are as follows:

  • Peak parking times:    7:00am – 5:00pm
  • Off-peak parking times:           5:00pm – 9:00pm

The off-peak parking times rate of $5 will not be applied during special festivals, Nights of Lights, and on days when free satellite parking and shuttle services are operating.

All parking rates for any registered St. Johns County resident using the ParkNow Card will remain the same.

Hours of enforcement for City-managed parking lots and street parking spaces will be extended citywide from 5:00pm to 9:00pm and will include Sundays from 1:00pm to 9:00pm.

The new rates and hours of enforcement will go into effect on Monday, November 6, 2023.
