Parking information in St. Augustine – PARKNOW card   You may have recently read in The Record about the new St Augustine parking app available for download.  The free parking app is called parkstaug.  The website is the same:  www.parkstaug.com  It is currently not available for the Parking Garage (across from Francis Field).  But look for that integration sometime this year.  Some uses include being able to pay for parking with your phone, receive alerts before a parking session expires and, I like this one, extend a parking session without ever having to return to the vehicle.  Your vehicle is identified by its license plate so you won’t need to display a receipt on your vehicle’s dashboard.  Parking meters are going away but not the parking pay stations (issues parking stubs) for those without the app.  Sign up for resident discounts at the web link above; you will need to take a photo of your license and car registration so you can upload it when applying for the discount.  ParkNow cards will be phased out gradually to give you time to use any funds you put on your card.

Those who wish to speak to someone directly may call the city’s Parking Division at 904-825-1090, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Parking  On street parking is available near the Plaza and is free throughout the city after 5:00pm and national holidays and Sundays, except for the Castillo de San Marcos which is enforced seven days a week. Parking is also available in the Historic Downtown Parking Facility map (HDPF), 10 S. Castillo Dr., located at the St. Augustine Visitors Information Center, a 10-minute walk along St. George St. from the Plaza. The cost for parking in the HDPF is $15 per entry or $3 with a ParkNow card info.  And the meters are just .50 vs $2.50! There is a brochure at this ParkNow site with more details.   Always check the websites – policies and fees are subject to changes.    Parking tips, click here.
