Valet staff will be at stations and they will issue you an e-claim check to show the valet when you want your car back. The valets will park your car at the 16th street Mission Hall lot. There is no additional fee for the valet service, but regular parking rates apply: $5/hour and $35 max/day. $7 max rate for ADA customers.
