City of Sarasota Launches New Permit Program Using RFID Technology


The City of Sarasota Parking Management program is now offering a faster and easier way to park. Like the toll road pass system, Breezy Pass will make getting in and out of the City’s parking garages faster, easier, and touch free! The new system will improve accessibility for individuals with disabilities. It also provides a faster, contactless entry and exit program for employee parking. For the first time, the City is also encouraging the general public to purchase the Breezy Pass to improve parking access at all the City’s award-winning parking facilities.

Using the Breezy Pass simplifies the payment process and reduces time to find parking. Commonly referred to as a permit, Breezy Pass will be provided and offer several operating features which vary by location.

Breezy Pass will be available for use in the Palm Avenue and State Street garages in Downtown, and the St. Armand’s parking garage. A pass can be purchased that is good for all three facilities, the downtown garages, or just St. Armand’s garage. Users will be able to pay a flat monthly rate or pay the actual parking fee via debit account maintained on file with the City. Rules of use vary based on selected options, so please review applications for more details.
