The City of Santa Rosa offers a steeply discounted garage permit to employees who work downtown during evening shifts. The Evening Employee Garage Permit is $10/month and is designed to encourage employers and employees to park in the garages, thereby freeing up highly desirable on-street parking spaces for customers. The permit is available at all five public garages and is valid between the hours of 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

Charges for Additional Time
It is important that parkers understand garage access cards will work 24 hours a day, in the assigned garage only. However, the parker will be charged for time in the garage prior to 3 p.m. and after 6 a.m. The discounted permit covers only the hours between 3 p.m. and 6 a.m.
For example, if an evening employee permit holder enters at 2:00 p.m. and leaves at 1:00 a.m.; the exit gate will prompt them to pay for 1 hour (2 p.m. to 3 p.m., the time parked prior to the permit eligibility) at the garage's hourly rate. Once a parker pays the amount due, the gate will open to let them out. Payments can be made by credit card at the exit lane.
