Free Friday & Saturday Evening Valet Comes to Downtown Ferndale

January 10, 2019

Heading to Ferndale for a weekend evening on the town? Don't give parking a second thought—you'll find fast, easy, and FREE valet parking every Friday and Saturday between 4-9 p.m. courtesy of the City of Ferndale and the Downtown Development Authority.

The free valet program is being offered as part of the City’s and DDA’s ongoing temporary parking solutions, meant to provide parking relief to downtown residents, visitors, and employees during the construction of The dot mixed-use parking development.

WHEN

Downtown valet launches Friday, Jan. 18, and will be offered every Friday and Saturday between 4-9 p.m. This helps to alleviate parking challenges during the peak days and times of the City’s downtown municipal parking lots.

WHERE

The StarTrax valet stand will be located in the business alley between 9 Mile businesses and the Withington Parking Lot. Use Planavon St. to access the business alley—it's now open to two-way traffic. Drop off your vehicle at the stand, located behind Dye Salon and Liberty Tax, then stroll up the pedestrian walkway to access downtown shops, restaurants, and events.

CAN I FIND PARKING ELSEWHERE?

Yes! The City offers ten other (often overlooked) municipal parking lots, all located within a short 5-10-minute walk from downtown. Learn more about where to find nearby parking, or view an interactive parking map.
