Reston Town Center Parking Availability Signs Now in Service

Sign outside Reston Town Center Green Garage

Updated, 4:20 p.m. Tuesday: Reston Town Center now said Tuesday afternoon in a Tweet it is turning off the availability signs “to allow for the final preparations for Sept. 12.”

Original story: Paid parking is still a few weeks away, but one of the features of the new parking system is up and running.

The electronic parking availability signs were on as of Monday, directing visitors to how many spaces are open at RTC’s seven garages.

Sign inside Reston Town Center Green GarageThere is one sign outside the garage entry that shows the total number of spaces available. A second sign, just inside the entry, shows the number of available spaces on each garage level. Signs inside the garage, suspended from the ceiling, show the number of available spaces in a particular row.

This could save visitors time they would spend circling the garage to find an open space.

After Sept. 12, this feature comes at a price. Parking will cost $2 an hour for weekday visitors. Saturday and Sunday will remain free, and some businesses will offer validation or discounts on future parking.
