New Downtown Parking Garage Opening a Success! Watch Video Below!

San Leandro's new Downtown Parking Garage is now open! A ribbon cutting event was held on November 16. Click here to watch the video of the ceremony.

"We are extremely pleased to announce the opening of the new Downtown Parking Garage," stated Mayor Cassidy. “The garage will play a critical role in enhancing our downtown by offering convenient parking for employees and customers of our downtown businesses.”

The new garage contains 384 parking spaces, a capacity increase of about fifty percent over the facility it replaces. The garage supports existing businesses in Downtown San Leandro by providing safe, convenient parking for employees and business patrons, while leaving San Leandro’s surface lots and street parking for shoppers. A centralized parking facility also facilitates higher density development in the downtown, consistent with the goals of the City’s Transit Oriented Development strategy.

Parking Permits and Fees

The parking permit and fee structure for the new garage will be as follows:

  • First Floor: Free parking limited to two hours.
  • Second and Third Floors: Monthly permit parking. Permits will be $70/month for a reserved space and $45/month for unreserved parking.
  • Fourth Floor: Full day parking. Free through December 31, 2012, $2.50 per day thereafter.
Parking will be free and unrestricted throughout the garage after 5:00 p.m. daily, and all day on weekends. No overnight parking between 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. daily.

Downtown employees are encouraged to purchase monthly permits or park on the fourth floor of the garage, leaving the parking spaces closest to businesses for customers. For a monthly parking permit, please contact the City of San Leandro Finance Department at (510) 577-3372 or for more information.
