Parking Restrictions at the Golden Gate Bridge

June 22, 2020 04:00 PM

Beginning Monday, June 22, the Golden Gate Bridge District will reopen parking lots at the south end of the Bridge on weekdays. Weekend and holiday parking lot closures will remain in effect as a precautionary measure to avoid crowding during the COVID-19 pandemic and shelter-in-place public health orders.

Bridge visitorship has declined dramatically since the shelter-in-place orders went into effect in mid-March. This is good news that demonstrates the public is largely obeying the public health orders, helping our communities stay healthy and safe during this crisis. We encourage the public to keep up the good work and continue following public health guidelines.

In addition to the parking restrictions, the District has placed ample signage around entrances to the Bridge to encourage people to practice social distancing and wear a face covering if they must be out in public. Bridge security staff will continue to monitor pedestrian and bicycle traffic to ensure social distancing is maintained on the Bridge sidewalks.

Visitors parking at the Bridge should remember to secure their valuables or bring valuables with them to avoid theft.

Details on the updated parking restrictions:

  • All Bridge parking lots will be open Monday through Friday, beginning Monday, June 22. 
  • The Southeast Visitor parking lot and Caltrans' Vista Point parking lot will be closed on weekends and holidays from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
