New Parking Permit System Introduced in Juneau Garages

Juneau, Alaska (KINY) – Starting July 1, the Marine Parking Garage (MPG) and Downtown Transit Center (DTC) will implement a new parking permit system using advanced technology. This update is part of ongoing efforts to modernize CBJ parking systems.

The new system allows drivers to purchase and manage permits online. It utilizes License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology, eliminating the need for physical permits. Your license plate will serve as a virtual permit. This technology helps monitor occupancy and parking capacity, ensuring efficient use of both garages.

Drivers can easily buy and manage parking permits online, removing the need for hangtags. A single permit can cover up to three vehicles, though only one can use the garage. Customers can add or remove vehicles from their permits online.

Annual and monthly permits can be purchased and managed at juneau.thepermitportal.com using a credit or debit card. Permits can also be bought with cash or check at the Parks & Recreation office on the second floor of City Hall (155 Heritage Way).

The MPG will soon have four additional hourly parking spaces. All parking spaces in the DTC and MPG, including EV and ADA spaces, require a permit or payment from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Vehicles with valid ADA permit placards are exempt from the two-hour limit for on-street parking.

Library patrons can park for free for up to two hours in spaces A-V with validation from library staff.

Hourly parking is available on the ground floor of the MPG (spaces 1-25), the Shopper’s Lot, and the North Franklin Street Lot.

Parking on MPG Level 2 and above requires an MPG permit.

All parking at the DTC requires a DTC permit.

Permits for both garages are currently on a waitlist. To be added, call (907) 586-5226.
