As in years past, after 4:30 p.m. on weekdays and on weekends Flex permit holders will be able to park in certain lots that are not their primary lot. If enforcement hours are in effect when you park in a different lot, you must have your permit displayed and be in paid status using the zone code from your primary lot. If a certain lot is free to park in after enforcement hours, you don’t need to be in paid status. To check lot hours of control, please see the lot locations and hours page.
If paying online or in the mobile app, the system will prompt you to choose the number of hours to park OR to select the daily maximum. If you intend to park 8 hours or more (for sessions beginning before 4:30 p.m. on weekdays OR >5 hours after 4:30 p.m. on weekdays/weekends), it is important to select the daily maximum to be shown in paid status beyond 8 hours. If you select a flat 8 hours, you are only in paid status for 8 hours from the time you start the session.
When paying over the phone (not via the app), the system will tell you the max number of hours available to park. Select the maximum if you intend to park beyond the lengths of time described above.
