President's Day Holiday

Occasional Parker Program Update

The purchase of day passes at the entrance to the President Street garage is causing entry delays for you and for the other users of the parking garage and is creating traffic backups on President Street during peak morning arrival times.   Day-pass services require an entry transaction and cannot be handled elsewhere.  You can help us speed up your and everyone’s entry if you will do the following:

  • Pay in cash.   Credit card is convenient, but the new CHP cards have added significantly to the time it takes to process a transaction.
  • Bring the right denomination, $5, so that change doesn’t have to be made.
  • Purchase day passes in advance.   Stop by the parking office one day on your way back to your vehicle, purchase up to five passes a month and have a few day passes on hand when you need them. 

A purchase with cash at the garage entrance will shave off three-fourths of the time it takes for a credit card transaction.   Transaction time at the garage entrance with a pre-purchased pass is reduced to a few seconds--just long enough to date stamp the day pass. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Hagood Alternate Parking Areas

We recently notified you of an additional parking area for your use while the main Hagood lot is under renovation.  A photo of this location is attached.  It is the former SC Employment Security Building located on Lockwood Drive between the Marriott Hotel and the City of Charleston Traffic & Transportation and City Police buildings.   Please note that the front part of the parking area is College of Charleston parking.  MUSC’s area is the larger, rear portion of the parking lot.

Also attached is a photo of the MUSC section of the VIP lot at the Riley Ballpark and one for the SC Employment Security Building parking.  

We understand that expansion work in the northwest quadrant of the main Hagood lot will be completed soon.  When this section of the main lot is reopened, MUSC parkers may occupy it while the expansion work moves to the south west quadrant.  We will keep you posted as work progresses. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation while improvements are being made.
