Paid parking in Vail’s public parking structures and outlying lots will begin at 6 a.m. Friday, Nov. 15 to coincide with the opening of Vail Mountain. Parking passes will be available for purchase from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday throughout the season, with the exception of Thanksgiving and other holidays, on the lower level of the Vail Municipal Building, 75 S. Frontage Road. Bring proof of eligibility as restrictions apply.
To accommodate the opening of Vail Mountain, Vail Transit is adding service to West Vail, Lionsridge Loop and Ford Park to supplement the early winter season prior to implementation of the full winter schedule on Dec. 9 which will include express service to and from West Vail every 15 minutes via the Sandstone underpass during morning and evening peak. In addition, summer service to Ford Park via Vail Valley Drive on the in-town route will be discontinued until Memorial Day Weekend. The town is again offering six parking pass options this winter which provide significant discounts over the standard daily rates. Value card holders from previous seasons are asked to stop by the Municipal Building to activate new cards. Please bring proof of employment, residency or property ownership to meet qualifications.
