Free Holiday Valet Parking Downtown December 16 - 24

Free Holiday Valet Parking in Downtown Los Altos

Los Altos, Calif. – November 25, 2013 – The City of Los Altos is pleased to offer complementary valet parking once again this holiday season.

Starting Monday, December 16 and running through Tuesday, December 24, free valet parking will be available in Central Parking Plaza 5 located between Second and Third Streets and Main and State Streets. Due to the lower demand for parking on Sundays, the valet will not operate on Sunday, December 22.

The Holiday Valet Parking program will maximize the available parking spaces in the highest demand area of town and facilitate easy parking for customers shopping downtown this holiday season. Central Parking Plaza 5 will be operated exclusively by the valet company, Corinthian Parking, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. December 16 through 24. The Plaza will be closed to public use each morning but will be open after the valet hours. The valet station will be accessible via the Third Street entrance to the Parking Plaza. 

Customers who use the valet service will not be subject to the 3 hour posted time limits in the Plaza, making the valet service a great resource for those planning to spend an extended amount of time downtown. 

Employees are strongly discouraged from using the valet service. The valet program will not displace any “white dot” employee permit spaces. For those downtown employees who typically park in this Plaza, quarterly employee parking permits are available for purchase from the Los Altos Police Department for $12.

The Los Altos Chamber of Commerce and the Los Altos Village Association have both partnered with the City by contributing funds to offset the cost of providing this holiday service.
