PROMOTE
New Downtown Valet Assist Parking

The City of Mountain View launched a free one-year downtown valet assist parking pilot program at Parking Lot 11 (Villa Street at Franklin Street). The City hired a parking management company (Parking Company of America) to provide the valet service.  The program stations valet attendants in Parking Lot 11 to assist vehicles when parking and/or exiting the parking lot. Drivers using the program will release their vehicle and vehicle keys to allow attendants to move vehicles when needed. The program is available for any driver parking in downtown Mountain View during the following days and hours:
 
·        Days: Thursday through Sunday
·        Lunch Hours: 11:00 am to 2:00 pm
·        Dinner Hours: 5:00 pm to 12:00 midnight
·        Cost: Free
 
Thank you for supporting our downtown businesses.

Mountain View has a pretty good variety of hamburgers, and here's a solid list of the standard places to grab a burger around town... Read Now
