On January 23, 2019, Westfield UTC will be introducing a new secured parking plan designed to ensure that our valued customers have the convenient parking access they deserve.
The plan keeps the first two hours of parking at UTC free of charge, with company research showing that this will accommodate nearly 85% of existing customer visits.
After the initial two hours of free parking, guests will be charged $2 for visits lasting 2-3 hours, $4 for visits lasting 3-4 hours, and $6 for visits lasting 4-5 hours. The $15 daily maximum will be reached for visits lasting longer than 9 hours.
Patrons of UTC’s Arclight Cinemas, 24-Hour Fitness, and the UTC Ice Sports Center will be able to receive validations for additional hours of free parking, with the first $2-per-hour charge only coming into effect upon expiration of the extended validation.
At the same time, UTC has also been rolling out a full suite of convenient new parking options to improve the customer experience for all visitors. These include:
- A well-lit, secure, and easy-to-navigate five-level parking structure offering direct and convenient access to shopping, dining, and entertainment.
- The center’s new parking facilities also feature “park assist technology” – a simple, easy-to-understand system of red and green lights leading drivers directly to the first available open space.
- For those guests who enjoy the convenience of valet service, UTC has also recently opened a new, four-lane valet drive-up on La Jolla Village Drive. There is a flat $8 rate for visits lasting up to four hours, with an additional $2 per hour fee after thereafter (up to a daily maximum of $20).
- UTC also now includes a new designated drop-off and pick-up station for Uber vehicles (located alongside Room & Board).
The new secured parking plan has been designed to help alleviate the inconveniences experienced by UTC guests as a result of the hundreds of vehicles left on-site each day by individuals making visits elsewhere in the local neighborhood.

PARKING ACCOMMODATIONS FOR STORE EMPLOYEES
UTC tenants will have the option of purchasing for their employees monthly or daily parking passes. If not purchased by the employer, individual employees may purchase the passes themselves. More details, including costs, have been provided to store managers to share with employees.
In addition, Westfield UTC is pleased to be able to provide interested store employees a 50% subsidy on the cost of monthly public transit passes (Westfield UTC will subsidize $36 of the $72 monthly expense) on the San Diego MTS.
