Monthly Parking Program

August 12, 2015
Dear Monthly Parking Customer: 

I want to inform you of some changes in Seattle Center parking rates. Effective after the conclusion of the September monthly parking sales period, we are raising monthly parking rates at our three garages: 1st Avenue North, Mercer Garage and 5th Ave North. The rate increases, a necessary adjustment to cost increases, are the first in over two years.

Here are the new prices associated with each of our garages:
  • “All Hours” monthly parking at the 5th Ave North and Mercer Garages is now$120.00.
  • “Working Hours” monthly parking at the 5th Ave North and Mercer Garages is now $100.00.
  • “All Hours” monthly parking at the 1st Ave North Garage is now $130.00.      
  • “Working Hours” monthly parking at the 1st Ave North Garage is now $120.00.
  • The group purchase discount of $5.00 per parking access card continues to apply. 
We are also implementing several operational improvements that will enhance our delivery of service to you.
  • On line monthly parking sales and renewals. 
  • New way-finding and exterior signage in Mercer and 1st Avenue North Garage
  • Multi-Module Staff Customer service training  

It is our pleasure at Seattle Center to provide you with monthly parking, and we look forward to your continued business.  If you have questions, or would like additional information about parking at Seattle Center, please contact me at 206 684-0776 or Richard.Pedowitz@seattle.gov.

    Program Highlights:
    • Your monthly parking payment is due by the last day fo the month preceding the month for which you are purchasing--there is no grace period.
    • Monthly parking is available on a first come-first served basis.
    • Following proper traffic patterns and safety rules is our imperative -- we ask that you never enter through an exit, drive the wrong way in a one-way lane, or exceed the 10 mph speed limit.
    • Parking only in a properly designated stall is the expectation -- not doing so may result in a citation.
    • 1st Avenue North Garage parking access cards are not valid between the hours of 5 PM - 10 PM during the WNBA Storm Home Games (or other times as notified). Seattle Center will make available other parking locations for your use on these occasions.
    • All rates are subject to change without written notice. However, it has been our practice to give at least 30 days notice on our website and in our office.
    • There are no refunds for unused parking.
    • Do not leave valuables in your car or do so at your own risk.
    • Neither is Seattle Center nor the City of Seattle responsible for damage to, nor theft of your vehicle or its contents.
