The large Trader Joe’s / CVS parking lot is free with a 2-hour restriction.
They do tow cars if parked longer than 2 hours, so be aware of this.
The much smaller Galleria parking lot on the other side of the building is free with no time limit.
There is a large, multi-story city parking lot right next to the Galleria lot ($1.00 for up to two hours, $5 daily maximum). There are parking meters on the streets.
Carpooling – Look for a list at the Center for those who would like to carpool. Interested carpoolers can provide information about their needs and the ISC programs they frequent. A volunteer will help to connect those who would like rides with those who are willing to drive.
Escorts – For those who are not quite sure about their comfort level walking alone downtown, there will opportunity to request escort to your car at evening sits.
ISC does not have indoor bike storage. We suggest public bike lockers for the highest level of security. All bicycle lockers in Santa Cruz require the use of a ParkCard.
