    Effective May 2021, the procedures for requesting parking validations for Special Events has changed. Due to automation of several parking garages and as the parking system is being upgraded, outdated validation machines are no longer used for guest parking validations. Instead, guests will be issued a pre-validated 'visitor ticket' by the event sponsor in lieu of a validation stamp. Guests will have to pull a regular ticket upon entering the garage and present their ticket to the event sponsor in exchange for a 'visitor ticket', which they will use as validation upon exiting the garage.

    In order to request visitor tickets, event sponsors must complete and submit a Special Events Parking Request and Form to LAWA Parking Services office. Event sponsors must collect all parking tickets in exchange for each visitor ticket issued. Visitor tickets can be used in any parking structure and are good for a one-time use only. After the event, event sponsors must return collected parking tickets and extra visitor tickets to: Sharon Loville, LAWA Parking Services Office.
