Free Parking, 900 New Parking Spaces and More to Make Downtown Redwood City More Accessible

The Redwood City Improvement Association, a non-profit community benefit district ran by a board of property owners, residents, community members and businesses, is shedding light on Downtown Redwood City’s parking improvements—more parking spaces, extended free parking hours and upgraded parking resources—making it easier and more enjoyable to visit the downtown area.

“As our lively downtown neighborhood continues to grow, it’s crucial that our visitors can easily access all we have to offer,” said Eric Lochtefeld, Redwood City Improvement Association’s president. “The Redwood City Improvement Association is dedicated to making our community more energized and beautiful. In order to do that, we listen to what the community says we need and do what we can to address those thing. Parking has been one of those things and now we are able to help bring more parking spaces to Downtown and improved marketing resources—like our valet option.”

Currently, there are about 4,000 parking spaces in Downtown Redwood City. Below are the newest parking-related actions that were just announced this month.

  • Nine hundred new downtown parking spaces are available for the public to utilize on week nights and weekends at the new Box headquarters (Crossing 900 building)
  • Free parking in all public lots before 10 a.m. and on weekends—in select areas
  • New two hour parking limit on Broadway between El Camino Real and Main St. from 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday
  • Eighty-eight space garage at 815 Hamilton to be open to the public on week nights and weekends, set to open in the fall of 2017
