A program from the city of Austin and the Downtown Austin Alliance that provides affordable parking overnight to service-industry and hospitality workers is quadrupling its number of spots available.
The affordable parking program costs $40 per month plus tax. Previously, it offered 500 spots in four public garages. On Thursday, the program expanded to eight private garages managed by Premier Parking.
At the new garages, drivers will be able to park between 3 p.m. or 4 p.m. to 7 a.m. The garages are owned by various companies, including Endeavor Real Estate Group, Stream Realty and TIG.
Applications for the affordable parking program and more information are available here.
