What We Do
Parking Services operates three parking garages and five pay-by-space
lots within the City of Modesto. We provide monthly parking permits that can be
purchased by contacting the City of Modesto Finance Department. The Parking Services
Division has recently implemented an automated revenue collection system in the parking
garages. Exiting the garage is now quicker due to the new system that allows you to pre-pay
prior to returning to your vehicle. Click for directions on how to use the parking garage pay
station, or pay-by-space meters at parking lots.
