A.  Sorry, but no. We just happen to be neighbors.


Q:  Can I lend my monthly pass to a friend or family member?

A.  Typically, no. Unless you request special permission from Management, passes are non transferable and you may be at risk of violating your parking agreement. Please reference your parking agreement for further information or call the office.


Q:  Do you offer special parking rates during a citywide parking ban?

A.  YES – When the *City of Portland declares a citywide parking ban, Custom House & Temple Street parking garages offer a $5 overnight parking rate. Snow Ban parking begins at 5:00pm and is valid until 8:00am the following morning, Monday through Saturday and 10am on Sundays. Vehicles must remain parked in garage overnight to receive the snow ban parking rate. Vehicles in the garage after this time will incur additional regular parking rates.

In the event of a declared, consecutive-day parking ban (one event), you may leave the vehicle overnight until the times stated above, on the final morning. The one-time $5 rate will apply for all nights inclusive, plus any extra time beyond times stated above, on the final day of the event.

Example: Your vehicle exits the parking garage at 9:35am. In addition to the special $5 overnight parking ban rate, 2 hours of regular garage parking rates apply as well. [8-9am: 1st additional hour + 9-9:35am: 2nd additional hour (35min into 2nd hour)]

Please Note: Casco Bay Garage IS UNABLE to offer the special $5 overnight parking ban rate. Regular parking rates apply at this garage at all times.

*You may sign up here to receive a text or email notification from the City of Portland immediately when a citywide parking ban is in effect.
