Event Parking Rates
Reading Parking Authority (RPA) offers garage and surface lot parking options for events, including those held at the Santander Arena, Santander Performing Arts Center, and Miller Center for the Arts.
RPA utilizes convenience-based pricing, which means the parking fee at individual garages and lots is determined by its location in proximity to the event venue. The closer a parking garage or lot is to the venue, the higher the fee. The further a garage or lot is from the venue, the lower the fee.
Transactions may incur additional processing fee.
Rates subject to change.
