Starting Jan. 30, shoppers will be charged for parking as a part of Westfield UTC’s new secured parking plan. According to Westfield UTC’s website, the first two hours are free, but after that shoppers are charged $2 for visits lasting 2-3 hours, $4 for visits lasting 3-4 hours, and $6 for visits lasting 4-5 hours. If you plan to spend more than nine hours shopping, expect to be charged the full-day maximum rate of $15.
Parking validations are available for customers of UTC’s Arclight Cinemas, 24-Hour Fitness, and the UTC Ice Sports Center.
In addition to the new charges, Westfield UTC’s plan also includes additional parking options for customers such as a well-lit and secure five-level parking structure, “park assist technology” to help lead drivers directly to the first available open space, a four-lane, drive-up valet service on La Jolla Village Drive (which costs $8 for four hours and $2 per hour after that), and a designated drop-off and pick-up station for Uber vehicles.
The goal of this new plan is to help alleviate the inconveniences caused by “the hundreds of vehicles left on-site each day by individuals making visits elsewhere in the local neighborhood.”
