Parking News and Announcements
March 20, 2020 - In Response to COVID-19 Parking Division has Initiated Changes to Current Processes
The City of Santa Fe is being proactive with regards to Parking Citation Payments and Penalties during a time of economic difficulty and uncertainty for many residents. We are also taking steps to minimize personal contact, increase “Social Distancing” and keep our City staffers safe by providing options for making payments without visiting a City facility.
- Effective March 23, 2020, the fifteen (15) day grace-period to pay or appeal a parking violation citation from the date of issuance has been extended to sixty (60) days. This grace-period extension is scheduled to expire on May 31, 2020. However, parking citation recipients are encouraged to pay or appeal their parking citations by the due date printed on their citation.
- The Parking Division office located at 500 Market Street in the Railyard will be closed effective March 23, 2020, until further notice. Citizens wishing to pay or appeal citations, or apply for or pay for new or renewed parking permits are requested to visit the Parking Division's website www.santafenm.gov/parking. Parking citation payments can also be made by calling 1-833-805-1616.
We hope this provides some breathing room for economically-strapped residents at a difficult time, and some peace of mind for our employees.
June 7, 2019 - Railyard Parking Garage Routing Changes
This weekend will be one of the busiest weekends of the summer, and if you're planning on visiting the Railyard you should know about some traffic routing changes taking effect this Saturday, June 8, 2019.
The changes include:
1. At the Railyard Parking Garage, traffic will be routed to circulate each level when leaving so that it extends the queue and hopefully results in a continuous, moving line, rather than a dead stop traffic jam.
2. Signs indicating that Camino de la Familia is ‘Not A Through Street’ to reduce people coming down that street and then trying to turn around in front of the garage when they run into the dead end at Sanbusco fence.
3. Offering prepaid entry to the garage when there are events. Movie goers will not have to prepay since they get validation.
Please let us know if you have questions or suggestions.

August 31, 2018 - Pre-Pay Event Parking Rate at City Facilities

We are proud to announce that the cost of our pre-pay event parking at our City parking garages has now been reduced to seven dollars ($7.00).
April 13, 2018 - New Parking Meter Decals
As part of an ongoing effort to improve customer service and provide users with a pleasant parking experience, City of Santa Fe’s Parking Division has installed new decals on all City parking meters. The decals (shown below) provide parking customers with valuable information such as:
- Maximum parking time limits for each zone, which are defined by color-coded blocks.
- Enforcement days and hours of operation.
- Meter holidays when meters are not enforced.
- Instructions on reporting a malfunctioning (broken) meter. Customers can scan the QR code on the decal which will direct them to the Parking’s online form to report malfunctioning meters. (*Android users must download a QR Code Reader App from Google Play Store; iPhone users can simply use the camera on their cell phone.)
- Web address to report a malfunctioning (broken) meter.
