CCDC owns six parking garages totaling 3,179 public parking spaces, which are managed as ParkBOI, Downtown Boise’s public parking system. The system accommodates nearly one million visitors annually who come to Boise’s downtown to work, shop and play.

All six garages are mixed use facilities attached to restaurants, retail businesses, hotels or condominiums. All garages accommodate contract/monthly parkers, hourly/transient customers and attendees to special events. Garages are open all day, every day.

The agency created and launched a comprehensive parking website focused on downtown options for the driving public. Check out  when you have a moment (and are not operating a motor vehicle).

CCDC’s parking spaces are part of over 18,000 spaces in Downtown Boise. The City of Boise operates approximately 3,000 on-street parking meters. The remaining 15,000 spaces are privately owned spaces in garages or surface parking lots, some of which are available to non-tenant customers.

Boise On-Street Parking Rates

On-street parking rates are identified by three zones, each with different rates associated. Downtown meters accept credit and debit cards and users can add additional funds to their meter through the Park Mobile App. Learn more about on-street parking rates and locations by visiting


ParkBOI On-Street E-Permits

The City of Boise’s ParkBOI E-Permit program is designed as a low cost permit for downtown employees. Permits are valid in designated areas in the perimeter of downtown, but permit holders can park in these spaces any time during the week. These permits are $25/month, but the fee can be waived if the employee utilizes alternative transportation for 5+ days in the preceding month (for example you could ride the bus to work 5 days during the month of May and get June’s permit at $0.00). This program is based on availability and is subject to a lottery every six months to ensure equal access.

The Twilight E-permit program was developed for downtown employees who work later afternoon or evening shifts. The cost is $15/month and allows parking after 3 pm at parking meters in zone 3.

Both permits use a vehicle’s license plate as an electronic permit so applicants can purchase them online and use them immediately without making a trip to City Hall.
