  • Is there a difference between on-street and off-street parking?

    The on street parking system is managed by the City of Spokane. Find more information about meter parking on the City of Spokane website.

    Most off-street parking is managed by private building, lot or property owners. Costs and accessibility for these lots will vary. Look for the white "P" on the blue background which indicates the lot or garage is accessible to the public.

  • Where do I find parking?

    Downtown Spokane offers a variety of parking options from on street meters and surface lots to day and long-term garages at a fraction of the cost of other cities. If you’re coming downtown for the day, for a special event, or to enjoy the many shopping and dining opportunities, you don’t have to look far to find a place to park. Use the map above to locate the right space for you.

  • Where do I park if I work downtown?

    If you work in the downtown area and your employer does not provide parking for you, there are many parking lots and garages that offer monthly parking passes ranging in cost from $100 to $200 depending on location and accessibility.

    For $40 a month through the STA you can park at the Spokane Arena and shuttle into downtown. The shuttle runs during the work-week into downtown from 6:00 a.m. through 8:00 p.m. More
