PARKING VALIDATIONS
Take a picture of this QR code and use it for parking validation. This validation is only usable at 2nd/San Carlos & Market/San Pedro garages and it is good for a validation period of 3 hours and 30 minutes. To reset the timer, you'll have to exit and reenter the garage.

This validation cannot be combined with other validations.

Note: On a Shark's game day at SAP Center (formerly known as HP Pavilion), the San Pedro & Market Street Garage will have a pre-pay flat fee of $7, 2.5 hours before the start of the game, until a half hour after the game begins. For example, if a Shark's game starts at 7:30pm, then from 5pm - 8pm parking validations at the San Pedro & Market Street Garage will not be valid. However, if you have a parking pass for the San Pedro & Market Street Garage, then it will override the system.
