Get Here by Car

Downtown Boulder is home to 6 parking structures and 5 parking lots, along with on-street metered spaces -- over 4,000 parking spaces, all told!

Saturday and Sunday - parking is FREE in all City of Boulder parking garages.  We highly recommend the 15th and Pearl City of Boulder garage, as it is one of the largest garages and less likely to be full.

All city parking garages are now gateless. Garage parking will now be charged through Metropolis- an easy, contactless form of payment. Register using your cell phone number, vehicle's license plate and enter your credit card information to ensure a no-hassle entry and departure from all city garages. Metropolis works similarly to an express toll pass, by scanning your license plate and charging your registered account.
