Centro Parking

The Central New York Regional Transportation Authority (Centro), through its subsidiary Centro Parking, Inc., manages three surface lots in Downtown Syracuse. The revenue generated by these parking locations is used to help offset the costs of our bus services and maintain a high quality of public transportation. Centro Parking has managed these locations under contract with the State University of New York (SUNY) Upstate Medical University for nearly 30 years. Centro Parking also sells monthly parking spaces to individuals and institutions at a location under the Route 81 overpass near Adams St. For more information on parking at these locations please contact Centro Parking at: (315) 442-3333.
