You no longer need to schedule parking in advance for Grant Park South Garage — now you can simply pay as you go! This exclusive offer for Symphony Center patrons is a flat rate of $13.95 for up to 12 hours of parking. 

To take advantage of this parking option, you will need to set up your parking card so it is attached to a credit or debit card. Simply download and complete this form and then return it to Grant Park South Garage. 

You can either email the form to the garage at sales@millenniumgarages.com or drop it off at the Grant Park South Garage office. If emailing the form, enter "call me" in the credit card area and the parking garage will call you to complete your set-up securely. If you already have a parking card from past seasons, you will need to complete this form so the parking garage can reconfigure your card properly. 

For more information, call the Grant Park South Garage at 312-922-1156 and mention that you would like to set up a CSO parking card.
