Paid parking set to begin Friday at Vail structures

Daily staff report

VAIL — Paid parking in Vail’s parking structures and outlying lots begins Friday to coincide with the start of Vail Mountain’s ski and snowboard season. Parking passes are available for purchase from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Mondays through Fridays throughout the season on the lower level of the Vail Municipal Building, 75 South Frontage Road. Bring proof of eligibility as restrictions apply.

The town is offering five parking pass options which provide significant discounts over the daily rates. Value card holders from previous seasons are asked to stop by the municipal building to activate new cards. Please bring proof of employment, residency or property ownership to meet qualifications.

Also beginning Friday, Vail Transit will be adding service across all routes to supplement the early winter season, Friday to Dec.13. Additional frequency will be added to routes with the start of the regular winter schedule which runs Dec. 14 to April 10.
