Town Of Vail Offers Help With New Parking System

25th October, 2022 by VCBA

Town offers help with new parking system;
passes to be emailed before Nov. 11

The Town of Vail will host the second of two parking pass assistance events for employees and locals from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 26 in the Council Chambers at the Vail Municipal Building, 75 South Frontage Rd. in Vail.

Participants will receive help in setting up their web-based parker portal, entering their preferred payment method and ensuring their supporting documents are verified. Due to ongoing system testing, passes will not be issued at the event. All passes will be emailed before the start of paid parking.

Online pass sales will begin on October 31. Paid parking is scheduled to begin on November 11.

Those with remaining balances on last year’s value cards can come to the Vail Municipal Building to receive reimbursement; bring your old value card or an ID. Amounts of up to $100 will be paid out in cash. Value cardholders with balances over $100 will be mailed a check.

Employees and locals attending Wednesday’s session will need to bring the following:

  • Proof of residency/property ownership for a Vail Local Pass or Eagle County Local Pass (Examples include a lease, utility bill, mortgage statement, property tax notice or driver’s license)
  • Proof of employment for an Employee Pass or Employee Plus Pass – Most passes require 30 hours/week average employment for a business located in a Village Core or Vail Mountain (Examples include a letter from an employer or a paystub)
  • Vehicle Information (Year, make, model, and license plate number)
  • Valid credit card and ID
