RV & Oversized Vehicle Parking 

Oversized vehicles like RVs – Oversized vehicle parking is avilable at the Transit Center parking lot by parking in two end to end spaces. Parking at the Transit Center requires a day pass, which can be purchased inside the Transit Center between 7 am and 5 pm Monday to Friday for only $5 per space.


Accessible Parking 
Durango has several reserved parking spaces for people with disabilities.  All vehicles parked in these designated spaces must have a valid parking placard or license plate properly displayed. These spaces have designated time limits on the sign which must be obeyed for turnover and access. Approved vehicles remaining in a reserved accessible-designated parking space for more than the designated time may be cited. Those drivers with a properly displayed placard or plate may park for an unlimited time in a non-reserved metered space without activating the meter, other than the 30 minute metered spaces.


Motorcycle parking

Dedicated motorcycle only spaces are available at four locations Downtown - in the 900, 1000 and 1100 blocks of Main Avenue, and on 9th Street. See the Parking Guide above for specific locations. Multiple motorcycles can park in any metered parking spot, but the meter must be paid.


EV Charging Stations

Located at the Transit Center, you can find fast charging stations as well as level 2 charging stations. The new ChargePoint DC Fast Charging Station is in the parking lot, adjacent to two existing level 2 charging stations. The cost to charge a vehicle at the fast charging station is 30 cents per kilowatt hour. An “idle fee” of 30 cents per minute kicks in when a vehicle is left plugged in longer than 10 minutes after charging is complete. Two vehicles can charge simultaneously at the station, which delivers a full charge in approximately 20 minutes. The level 2 chargers, by comparison, take roughly four hours to deliver a full charge.
