Part-Time Employee Parking (P-TEP)

P-TEP HID Parking Card Instructions

P-TEP renewal periods are every March and September. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, renewals must be processed onlineThe renewal period will extend through April 15th. Please call 916-808-8500 if you need assistance.  

What is the P-TEP Program?

If you are a part-time employee working in the downtown area and working 30 hours or less per week and making less than $22.00 per hour, you are eligible to park at a discounted hourly rate. This program is for employees working within the area bounded by E Street to the north, R Street to the south, 21st Street to the east, and the Sacramento River to the west.

How does the program work?

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

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.

Facilities that offer this program include:

  • Memorial Garage
  • Old Sacramento Garage
  • Tower Bridge Garage

What does it cost to join?

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

Please Note: Abuse of any program, including attempts to validate and use a discount on the same day, will result in the immediate and permanent cancellation of all program privileges.
