    Hey guys I am going on a trip that will be over night. I am taking the Metrolink train thing and I would like to just park in the parking lot. Do any of you know if I need a parking permit or something so I won't get a ticket?

    uhh, usually those parking structures have daily parking available for around $3 a day and then monthly parking permits for 10 or 20 a month.

    but I am not metrolink, try calling them. :)


    this may or may not be your town
    something i found on google

    Haha I already sent you the money.

    Well the parking lot I parked in was the "Santa Fe (in Orange CA) Public Parking," but did not have any sings/gates for paying. The only thing posted was a No Tresspassers Violators will be towed (or something like this).

    I didn't have a choice and had to park there. I get back at around 6 tonight so I suppose will see what happens.

    Sorry for the offtopic but $1 a day? or even $3 a day is parking that cheap in the usa? Over here in england it usually is around $3 an hour. =o

    Well it all depends on time of the day you park and where. I had to go to the Roosevelt hotel in Los Angeles and the first night I didn't get there till 9 so parking was 11/day, but the next day I showed up at 5 and got the day for $8.

    Public transit isn't exactly popular or efficient in the los angeles area, so I would guess that the $1/day parking is designed to lure people who would otherwise drive into the city.
