Weekday parking availability and cost varies by station and amount of time you park. Fares are collected upon exit during the following hours:

  • Friday 7:30 a.m.-2:00 a.m.

Current Parking Availability

Parking availability status is based on the real-time entry and exit at Metro lots or garages. It does not reflect where the cars park (spaces for reserved, paid, accessible, etc.). The status feature provides customers with an estimate of available spaces, not an exact count.

  • Available
    - ample parking spaces are available.
  • Limited
    - a limited number of parking spaces are available.
  • Full
    - no parking spaces are available.

Parking availability does not include reserved or accessible parking spaces and applies only to Metro-operated parking lots and garages. As we work to improve Metro facilities, some spaces may be temporarily unavailable.

  • Cost/day: Mon. - Fri. $5.20 / $8.70*
  • Payment: SmarTrip® and credit cards
* The lower cost per day requires a valid rail trip using a SmarTrip® card originating from a station other than the one where you parked.
