The Capital City Development Corporation changed its policy earlier this year to bar motorcycles from using the upper floors of the parking garages it owns in Downtown Boise.

The agency says there are “entry/exit issues with such small vehicles.”

As an alternative, motorcycle riders can now park free of charge in special designated areas on the ground floor of two garages – the Capitol & Main garage (formerly Capital Terrace) and 9th and Front garage (formerly City Center).  CCDC upgraded lightning and paint, and added signage letting motorcyclists know of the option.

Parking staffers will be putting fliers on motorcycles who are parking in paid spaces that they should no longer do so. The aim of the

literature is to let them know “while we appreciate their paid patronage, we’d rather they park in a safer, more convenient location within our system.”
