After serving the downtown area for just over two years with competitively priced and convenient parking in the downtown core of Minneapolis, ParkSmartMPLS announces a new 24-hour access card, valid at four of their downtown Minneapolis ramps.

For $185.00, users can now sign up for “ParkSmartPLUS” membership, which includes a 24-hour access card to the Loring, Centre Village, Gateway, and Seven Corners parking ramps. This card will guarantee members a parking space as well as in-and-out privileges and 24/7/365 ramp access with no blacked-out event days. Each of these ramps is located in downtown Minneapolis, with three of the four ramps being skyway connected to the downtown core.

“With ParkSmartPLUS, we are hoping to better serve those who work and live in the downtown area and who value mobility, cost, and simplicity from their parking provider,” said Jon Fletcher, Vice President of Marking and Sales. “Parking is a commodity that everyone in downtown Minneapolis has a need for, and we want to make it as affordable and convenient as possible.”

The Loring ramp is located at 1300 Nicollet Mall, on the corner of Nicollet Mall and Grant Street; Centre Village at 700 5th Avenue South, at the corner of 8th Street and 5th Avenue; Gateway at 300 South 3rd Street, on the corner of 3rd Street and 5th Avenue; and Seven Corners at 1504 Washington Avenue, ½ block west of 19th Avenue on Washington Avenue.
