Everyone loves downtown Plano, but its current parking situation–not so much. The Downtown Plano Arts District is growing, which means construction. And construction means temporary loss of parking lots. Downtown business owners and visitors alike have expressed a desire to alleviate parking issues.
Through a generous partnership with Mercedes-Benz of Plano, the Historic Downtown Plano Association is now offering valet parking completely FREE during the busiest times of the week in downtown Plano. There is no need to have your tickets validated; valet parking in downtown is completely free to visitors no matter which business you’ll be patronizing.
When is valet parking available?
• Wed-Fri 11am-2pm
• Thur-Sat 5pm-close
Where is the valet podium located?
• In the parking lot behind McCall Plaza, entering from 15th Street
What’s the cost to drivers?
Will the valet program take up the already limited parking space in downtown?
• Not really. Some of the cars will be parked in a small portion of the lot behind McCall Plaza. The majority will be parked in off-site lots.
Who’s parking my car?
• Lone Star Valet, a reputable valet service that handles parking at Shops at Legacy and the new Cowboys complex in Frisco.
Here’s a handy map of downtown Plano, with the valet podium marked by a red star:
