The Rhode Island Hospitality Association is partnering with the Convention Center to offer a discounted parking option. The discounts will be available to hospitality workers, and event patrons who park in the center's garage. Please contact Bob Sepe, RI Convention Center Garage Manager at 401-458-6339 to take advantage of any of the options below.
Discounted employee parking: The RICC will establish a discounted validation account with select area restaurants by providing them with pre-programmed $6 validation tickets (Chasers) for their valued employees. Each ticket will validate a single day of parking charges for employees up to a maximum of 10 hours.
Discounted employee parking sponsored by management: The RICC will establish an additional and separate discounted validation account where the employer purchases in advance a select number of $6 chaser tickets which are then distributed to their valued employees. Each ticket will validate a single day of parking charges for employees up to a maximum of 10 hours. The fundamental difference from validation program #1 is the cost of employee parking is picked up by management.
Patron Parking Validation Program: The RICC will establish a patron discounted validation account through which select area restaurants will pre-purchase validation chaser tickets at a cost of $6.00 each. The chaser ticket will provide patrons using the RICC garages with their first three hours of parking FREE OF CHARGE. Any time in excess of three hours will be charged to the parker upon exiting the garage at the posted RICC hourly parking rates.
Premium Patron Parking Validation Program: To accommodate special circumstances and patrons, RICC will establish a separate patron validation account through which select area restaurants will purchase chasers tickets at a flat $11.00 each. These pre-paid chaser tickets will provide patrons with unlimited parking up until 2:00AM.
