Q. Can I park in the two-hour parking spaces in the decks?
A. Yes. However, do not exceed the two-hour limit. These spaces are enforced by a Parking Enforcement Specialist.

Q. What are the parking decks hours?
A. The parking decks are open 24 hours a day. They are physically staffed by personnel from 7:30 am to 7 pm, Mondays through Thursdays, and 7:30 am to 6 pm on Fridays.

Q. How do I sign up for monthly parking?
A. Contact one of the deck attendants to sign up. Payment for parking cards is payroll deducted for City of Greensboro employees only. Non-City employees must make payment to the attendant at the time of sign up. This payment includes the monthly charge (or a pro-rated amount if signing up in the middle of the month), plus a card deposit charge, which is half of the monthly parking charge.

Q. What do I do when my card will not work?
A. Make sure the card is held within two to five inches of the proximity reader. If you have tried several times and it still does not work, take a ticket from the ticket dispenser to enter the deck and see the on-duty attendant. Your card may have been used out of sequence or it may be defective.

Q. Where will the monthly statement be sent?
A. Your monthly statement will be sent to the address you have listed on the application, unless your company handles the payment of your monthly parking costs.

Q. How long does it take to get a deposit refunded?
A. The cancellation forms are prepared at the decks and forwarded to the City’s Finance Department. This process takes about two weeks.

Q. How long does it take to get a card after my application has been submitted?
A. You will be issued a card when you turn in your application, along with your first month’s rent and a deposit for the card. The card deposit is refundable if your contract is terminated, your card is returned, and if there is no outstanding balance on your account.

Q. Can I have my monthly parking bill set up as a bank draft?
A. Yes. Simply fill out a bank draft form that allows the City of Greensboro to debit your checking account for the cost of the monthly parking bill. These forms can be obtained at each parking deck office during business hours.

Q. What do I do if there is a problem with a parking meter?
A. Call the City's Contact Center at 336-373-2489. The center will notify the Parking Division of the problem.

Q. Where can I pay my parking ticket?
A. As a courtesy to the residents of Greensboro, the City-owned parking decks will take your payment for parking violations and forward them to the Collections Division at the Melvin Municipal Office Building (MMOB).
