Business Owner & Employee Parking

Our long-term parking program for business owners and employees provides greater convenience and flexibility at a drastically reduced rate. The program provides all-day parking in long-term-designated spaces. You can park in the lot of your choosing, as long as you choose a space marked for long-term parking.

Get Your Pass

Purchase your permit online using our temporary Business Parking Portal. We're excited to announce that a much-improved, streamlined new online payment solution is on its way, scheduled to go live in Spring of 2018; we'll let you know as soon as it arrives. 

You can also purchase your permits in person at Ferndale City Hall, located at 300 E. Nine Mile Rd. Our customer service associates are available to serve you Monday through Thursday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. 

Cost & Value

The City’s long-term plan provides incredible value for regular parkers. The cost is $20 per month, $60 quarterly, or $240 for an annual permit—just $5 a week for the average part-time employee, a savings of 60% off regular parking rates. 

Safety First

The safety and well-being of our community’s employees, visitors, and residents is of the utmost importance. Whether you’re parked in a public lot or on a residential street, in Ferndale or in another metro-area city, the same safety concerns exist. Here are a few points to keep in mind:

  • Republic Parking takes safety concerns seriously. Part of their role in our community is walking routes between the business districts and parking areas, identifying potential issues (such as unsafe walking conditions or broken lights), and fixing or repairing problems.
  • All downtown streets and public lots are well lit, even late at night, to increase visibility and create safer walking conditions.
  • The Ferndale Police Department has a steady presence throughout the downtown, business districts, and parking areas, especially at night. To increase safety further, walk with someone else when possible, carry a cell phone, and avoid alleys and similar dark areas.
