What is MyPark?
MyPark is a revolutionary reservation system that allows you to reserve a premium spot, fifteen minutes or even up to six months in advance, just using an app on your phone. You can reserve in two ways – with the “PARK NOW” button if you are within, or with the “MAKE FUTURE RESERVATION” if you are going to arrive later or on another day. When you are in front of your assigned spot, just click “LET ME IN” on your app and the MyPark device will lower the arm and you can park like you own the place!

How long do I have to park my car?
When you tap “Let me in” you have 1 minute to enter the space for the first time, and 2 minutes to properly align your vehicle. You can back up and get back in the space, to properly align your car within those 2 minutes. If you tap “Let me In,” the arm will lower to give you access to the space. If a minute goes by and no one shows up, the arm will go up again and you will have the remaining of your 15 minutes to arrive at your spot and tap “Let Me In” again.
What happens if I don’t show up to my reservation?
Your reservation will expire, and the space will be available for another user. You can make another reservation, but be sure you don’t let 2 reservations expire in a day – if you do, the system will block you for 24 hours. Remember these are premium spots, we want them to be available for everyone. A cancellation fee may be charged at some locations.
