Parking is available around our facility and in surrounding areas. Most parking areas are regulated. When parking, always look for and follow posted regulations. Regulations may differ in different areas of the Presidio.
Parking that surrounds House of Air requires paid permits. Permits are available at the kiosk stands near the corners Planet Granite and La Petite Baleen. Free three (3) hour parking is available in the lot adjacent to the West Crissy Bluffs at the end of Old Mason St.
In paid parking areas, drivers must display an hourly or daily parking permit that corresponds to the zone number shown on posted regulations Permits can be purchased from a Pay-and-Display pay station or meter. The cost for hourly parking permits is $1/hour and capped at $6/day. All pay stations accept credit and debit cards, and many accept coins.
Hours when paid parking permits are required are indicated on signage (for example 8 am to 6 pm, Monday to Friday). Parking is free outside of the indicated hours and on federal holidays.
Pay-and-Display machines are located within clear sight in all regulated parking areas. To purchase a permit, follow the instructions on the machine. If the machine is out of order, find another machine within the same zone. If this is not possible or if you are having other technical difficulties with a meter, please contact the parking office at (415) 561-4265.
To use the machine, 1) select duration of parking, 2) insert coins or debit/credit card, and 3) retrieve the permit from the ticket dispensing cup on the lower front of the machine.
Return to your vehicle and place the permit on the dash board with the date and time visible through the windshield. For a motorcycle, place the permit in a visible location. Keep the receipt with you for your records. If you still have time left on your ticket when you return, you can use the permit elsewhere in the same numbered permit zone.
