  • Work 30 hours or less per week and  
  • Earn less than $25.00* per hour, including tips (*effective 12/1/2021)

How does the program work?

If an employee meets the minimum qualifications (as stated above) and submits proper documentation, a discounted parking permit to access a designated parking facility will be issued.

Upon sign-up, applicants must designate the single garage their P-TEP permit will be accepted. Your discount will apply only in that garage. Proof of your hourly wage with a current pay stub is required to qualify for the program. Availability of this program at any facility is subject to change at any time. 

Facilities that offer this program include:

  • Memorial Garage
  • Old Sacramento Garage (for employees of Old Sacramento merchants)
  • Tower Bridge Garage

What does it cost to join?

There is an initial $25 administrative fee for joining the program. If your card is stolen, you will be assessed an additional $25 administrative processing fee. With a P-TEP permit, you pay 50 cents per half hour. Discounted rates will apply upon exiting the garage.
