I need to stay longer. How do I extend my parking?

Modified on Tue, 24 Oct 2023 at 05:21 PM

If you find yourself needing to extend your time:

  • Check your pass in the app to see if your reserved location offers the ability to "Extend" a pass. This should be fairly evident when viewing an active pass (look for an "Extend" button or the phrase "Offers Time Extension" pre-purchase)

*Please note that not all locations offer the ability to extend parking

It is not recommended to stay parked outside the timeframe listed on your pass. If in doubt, go ahead and move your car to find alternate parking or book a new pass at a different nearby facility.

In unavoidable circumstances, should you need to stay parked longer, there is a risk that you could:

  • Have to pay on-site for that additional time - either through the payment machine on-site or an attendant on-site.
  • Have to pay on-site for your entire parking period - in these cases staying past the end time on your ParkWhiz pass essentially makes the pass "unrecognizable" for the digital systems that validate your parking, therefore you'll be charged twice for your parking
  • Be issued a citation - either a ticket or a boot
  • Be towed

If you're parked in an unattended lot that uses vehicle license plate validation, and you over stay your reservation, you are at risk of being towed. You could also be ticketed or booted, so you really must visit the lot as soon as possible and purchase more time on-site, or simply park somewhere else.

Booking back-to-back passes is NOT recommended as it would require you to physically visit the lot to validate each individual pass before it expires.
