One hundred 'A' parking spaces were made available in Pasteur Visitor Garage (PGA) in December 2017 in an effort to alleviate impacts related to construction on the Center for Academic Medicine project. These spaces are available on lower level 4 on a first-come, first-served basis. There is currently plenty of available parking in the garage.

Ticketing System in PGA

PGA is located on Pasteur Drive between Welch Road and Jordan Way, adjacent to the new Stanford Hospital, which is under construction. (Refer to Stanford Health Care map)

Please note that the process for parking in PGA is different than parking in other garages. Since it is designated primarily for patients and visitors, the garage operates on a ticketing system that determines payment when exiting.

Arriving at PGA

Upon arrival in the garage, all drivers, including ‘A’-permit holders, must take a ticket. In addition to that ticket, ‘A’-permit holders should request a voucher from the garage attendant on duty when they arrive.

Garage attendants will be on duty Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 12 a.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. If there is no attendant on duty, ‘A’-permit holders are advised to take a ticket and proceed to the designated parking spaces on Level 4.

Exiting PGA

When exiting, ‘A’-permit holders will be required to present their voucher to the staff attendant at the exit gate. If they arrived at a time when there was no attendant present, the ticket they took upon entry and their proof of valid ‘A’-permit will be accepted without charge. However, permit holders who receive a voucher then lose it, will be required to pay the full daily parking fee for the garage regardless of having an ‘A’ permit.

The Stanford University and Stanford Health Care parking teams will continue to evaluate parking demand and capacity to determine whether further adjustments are needed.
