For Residents

On event days at Levi’s Stadium, a permit parking pilot program will go into effect in the residential neighborhoods surrounding the Mountain View Transit Center.  The purpose of the program is to preserve on-street parking for residents.  The program allows vehicles displaying a stadium event day parking permit to use on-street parking on event days.


Downtown Parking and Traffic

The Levi's Stadium Parking Pilot Program will be in place on Sunday, February 7, 2016 from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm.  The three hour parking time restriction will apply within the program boundaries.  Current 2015-16 stadium event day parking permits will be valid on that day and residents within the program may request guest parking permits (see below).  There will be a noticeable uptick of people in the downtown area as stadium goers make their way to the stadium.  There will be street and parking lot closures around the Mountain View Transit Center beginning at 6 am on February 7.  No traffic will be allowed along those streets and no cars will be allowed to park in those areas.

The Mountain View Police Department will be increasing staffing to accommodate the influx of transit riders and visitors to the downtown area that day.  To stay up-to-date on street closures and what is going on in downtown Mountain View on February 7, 2016, follow the Mountain View Police Department's Twitter page: @MountainViewPD.  

Guest Parking Permits

Additional guest permits will be available for the February 7, 2016 football game.  If you would like parking permit(s) in addition to the two you have received, please visit the Community Development Department located on the first floor of City Hall at 500 Castro Street and complete an application form. Please provide the reason for the additional permit(s) and bring your current vehicle registration for each additional vehicle needing a permit.  If the registration is not up to date, please provide a utility bill or driver’s license with your current Mountain View address.

Sunday Farmers' Market

The weekly Farmers' Market in downtown Mountain View will move from the Transit Center parking lot to Parking Lot 12 (Bryant Street at California Street) with modified hours of operation from 9 am to 12 noon.


Who can participate in the program? Residents must live within the parking permit program boundaries, as shown on the map (PDF). Two permits per household will be mailed the beginning of August 2015 with guidelines (the guidelines will be posted on the website).  If you do not receive the permits by August 12, 2015, please contact the Community Development Department at (650) 903-6379.
