Special Event Parking Validations

Special Event Validation ImageSpecial Event Validation (Chaser) tickets are available for use at all of the City of Tampa Parking garage locations. These tickets are used for single or multiple day events to cover all parking charges for your event guests. These tickets will cover either the hourly charge or event rate charge for the facility. Usage of the chaser tickets is very simple. The guest will pull a ticket to enter the parking facility and will need to save that ticket to exit the garage. Once the guest is ready to leave the garage they will hand the cashier the original entry ticket and then the chaser ticket and be on their way! It's just that simple. Some of the garages have automated equipment to exit the garage. The process is the same with the use of chaser tickets at these automated locations. Simply enter the original entry ticket into the machine followed by the chaser ticket and be on your way! There is an instructional sheet available at the bottom of the page if further information is needed.

Please note the ticket will have the name of the event and the date it was printed on the bottom of the ticket. You may receive more tickets than you requested since we understand that attendance can change without notice. You will only be billed for the tickets used during your event. We do not bill based on the number of tickets issued. The parking charges will be invoiced at the end of the month and will be mailed to the billing address on file. Invoices can be paid by Cash, Money Order, Check, or Credit Card. Currently we only accept Visa, Mastercard, or American Express.

Daily Parking Validations

Daily Parking Validation ImageDaily Parking Validation (Chaser) tickets are available for use at all of the City of Tampa Parking garage locations. Daily Parking chaser tickets are used by business, offices, and agencies to validate parking for their customers or employees. Parking charges are invoiced each month and are payable by Cash, Check, or Money Order.

Daily parking validations can be set to cover all of the parking charges or only cover a certain time period for parking. For example, if the customer is parked for two hours in the garage your validation ticket can only cover the first hour of parking and the customer will be responsible for pay the remaining hourly charge. You will only be billed for one hour of parking.
