The Montclair Parking Garage is working with the City of Oakland to launch a pay-by-plate and gate-less parking system. This will be the first of its kind in Oakland, BUT uses payment options Oaklanders have seen on street for years… the ParkMobile app and self-service kiosks for Cash or Credit.

If you are unfamiliar with ParkMobile it is like FasTrak for parking, creating an easy, contact-less way to park at any metered space in Oakland, and is employed in hundreds of cities nationwide. This will be the first off-street facility in Oakland to incorporate this parking technology.

See details below on the NEW features of the Montclair Garage, AND a code for a FREE day of parking at the Garage when you use ParkMobile.

Our wonderful team of garage managers (Tee, Theo, and Felicia) are onsite and available to assist you with this new system, and as always there to help keep the facility safe and secure, and to continue connecting people to the businesses of Montclair.

Monthly parking permits are available for $100 per month. Please see the parking attendant for more information. If you already have a monthly parking permit, please make sure the parking attendant has your license plate information.


Add ParkMobile to your smartphone:

Step 1: Download the ParkMobile parking app on your smartphone through the App Store or Google Play Store, or by visiting and create an account. Don’t have a smartphone? You can still park using ParkMobile by calling 877-727-5718.

Step 2: Enter your vehicle information in the settings tab of the ParkMobile parking app.

When you are ready to park, and are safely in your space:

Step 1: Enter the zone number [Montclair Parking Garage is Zone #6501] posted on signs around the parking garage or conveniently located on the map in the ParkMobile parking app.

Step 2: Select the amount of time you want to park “duration” and start your session.

If time runs out while you’re out, ParkMobile will alert you by text and/or email before times expires and you can add more time on the app without having to return to your car.

The Montclair Garage will offer FREE 30 MINUTES of parking to all ParkMobile users, so the Garage is a convenient way to run an errand in the Village without having to pay for parking or search for a space on the street.

Use Code FreeMV on for a FREE DAY Parking at the Montclair Garage.

** The City and the Montclair Garage will be working during the pilot to determine how individual business can best offer free parking to customers, as of now merchants will no longer validate parking.

Parking Validation

Validations are a way for a Montclair business to offer FREE parking at the Montclair Garage to a customer or client. Previously, validations were in the form of a sticker good for 1 hour each, and purchased by the merchant to give out as desired.

The new validation system uses the digital parking platform [ParkMobile] now in place at the Garage and will be very similar in process and benefit for any Montclair business wanting to validate parking. Here are some highlights with additional details and instructions below:

  • Validations for FREE parking at this time can ONLY be used by hourly parkers paying for parking at the Montclair Garage with ParkMobile
  • Validations are good for $2 off (1 hour free for each code), same as before
  • Validations now come in the form of a CODE # to be entered by the customer/client into the ParkMobile app after the parking session has begun – Click “Enter Promotion Code” on the App
  • (1) code is good for one use, for one hour ($2 off) of parking, same as before
  • An unlimited number of codes can be used for an active parking stay. You can park, shop, get validations and stay longer!
  • ParkMobile charges a $0.30 transaction fee per parking session

Using the Montclair Parking Garage Validation Code

  1. Safely park your vehicle and open the ParkMobile app
  2. Start your parking session in ZONE # 6501 – The Montclair Parking Garage (choose the duration of time that you expect to stay > hit Start Parking and you will see the “meter” time counting down)
  3. After the parking session has begun select Enter Promotion Code (a Validation Code(s) can be added at anytime during an active parking session)
  4. Enter the Validation code(s) provided to you by Montclair merchant(s) (1 code = up to $2 off/1 hour of free parking)
  5. Hit Save (when entering multiple validation codes repeat Step 3 above)
  6. Your reduced cost of stay will appear on your parking receipt

**NOTE: A Validation Code can only be used once.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do validations work?
    • All users of the ParkMobile app will receive 30 minutes of FREE parking. Users can extend their parking once their session is almost over. An option of extending an additional 30 minutes is available for free, otherwise any extended time longer than 30 minutes will be charged extra.  For example, if you choose to park for 2 hours, you will only be charged for 1.5 hours.
    • You can receive validation codes from participating merchants around the village and enter them on the ParkMobile app. You will still be able to enter the validation code even after you check out. Each validation code is worth $2, which is equivalent to one hour of parking.
    • NOTE: the ParkMobile $0.30 transaction fee applies to every transaction, with exception of the free 30 minutes.
  • How many times can a user use each validation code?
    • Each validation code can only be used once, but multiple different codes can be applied to a parking session/stay. Example: A shopper shops at two places and receives two validation codes. They can use both codes to subtract a total of $4 from their parking session.
