Parking downtown is easier than ever. If you're looking for the added convenience of downtown parking, join more than 1000 people who already have their blue 2014 permit up. Purchasing a permit takes less than 5 minutes, but please give advance notice of any purchase of 4 or more permits at parking@downtowntc.com. An employee will be available to assist you in person or by phone 7am-midnight Monday through Saturday. Abnormal deck and office closing details are posted at all entrances at least 24 hours prior to any deck or office closing.
