May is a big month in the Bull City. We celebrate our new graduates from North Carolina Central and Duke Universities, we celebrate Mother’s Day, and this year, we celebrate our businesses starting to re-open their doors to customers. To encourage residents and visitors to make downtown Durham a part of these celebrations, we’re offering free daytime parking in all City-owned parking garages during the first week of May. 

From May 3-7, daytime parking is FREE in all City-owned parking garages – simply park and enjoy all that downtown Durham has to offer! As always, parking will remain free after 7 p.m. and all day on weekends.

  • Customers will need to pull a ticket upon entry to the garage. 
  • When exiting, insert the ticket into the device to exit free of charge.
