Event Parking:


* Daily parking commences at 5:00 AM and continues through 5:00 AM the following morning.



Monthly parking is due on or before the first of each month. At the time of sign-up, customers complete a monthly parking agreement and pay a one-time key card (access card) fee of $20.00. Ongoing monthly customers will receive an invoice for the upcoming month around the 15th of the prior month.  Payment is the responsibility of the parker and is due on or before the 1st of the month.

Due to the high demand for monthly parking, prompt payment is necessary to secure a parking space. Fees are due by the 1st of the month. Accounts not paid in full by the 7th of the month may be blocked from accessing their garage until payment is received.  Accounts that are still unpaid by the 15th of the month are subject to permanent cancellation and the parking space may be offered to customers on the waitlist.

What Payment Types Are Offered?

Permits must be purchased no later than the 5th of each month in order to avoid forfeiture of your current parking agreement/space.  Credit, debit, check or cash payments are accepted.

You can set up a recurring automatic withdrawal with your checking account or credit/debit card by contacting the ParkBOI office at 208-368-7944. This automatic withdrawal will occur on the 1st of the month. The monthly parking fee will automatically be charged every month unless you contact the ParkBOI office to remove your Auto-Pay setup.

How Do I Cancel My Monthly Parking?

You can email or visit the ParkBOI office to cancel your permit.

A 15-day cancellation notice is required when cancelling a monthly parking permit.  Please return your key card and hang tag by mailing or visiting the ParkBOI office.

How Do I sign up for monthly parking?

Because of the high demand for parking, you must first have your name on the wait list for the garage in which you are interested.  When space becomes available, you will be contacted and given instructions on how to purchase your monthly parking.  There is a non-refundable $20 wait list fee that will be applied to your access card when you get a space. 

To add your name to a waitlist you can either call the ParkBOI office at 208-368-7944 or email your contact information to

Is there a Waitlist?

Yes, for all garages there are wait lists. Each ParkBOI garage has a set number of spaces allocated for monthly parking and available to the general public on a first-come, first-served basis. In the event the allotted spaces are sold out in a garage, customers interested in obtaining monthly permits have the opportunity to be added to a wait list for that specific garage.

As spaces become available through cancellations and/or non-paying customers, waitlisted customers will be contacted (first-come, first-served) to offer them the opportunity to accept a parking space. Should customers turn down the space or fail to respond within three business days, they will be removed from that particular garage’s wait list. Should a customer wish to remain on the list after turning down an available space they will be moved to the bottom of that wait list.

To add your name to a waitlist you can either call the ParkBOI office at 208-368-7944 or email your contact information to


We ask monthly parking customers to park above a certain floor to allow hourly parkers visiting local retail and restaurants to park closer to the street. Monthly parkers are charged a discounted daily rate compared to the normal daily rate. In exchange, we ask monthly parking customers to drive a little further up into the garage.


Additional public parking, both garage and surface lots, may be available, but are privately owned and operated. Click here for a listing of additional downtown parking.
