I will be relocating to Sacramento for work within the next month or so and was wondering whether or not the office buildings (specifically the one at 980 9th Street) charge employees a for parking like they do in SF. I want to know because if they do I might just live in Midtown and walk to work.

Thank you

Pretty sure they do--it varies from employer to employer, but generally, yes, you have to pay for parking.

Yes, people have to pay for parking spaces there. I know people who work in that building. You can always take public transportation. Lots of buss stop in that area.

Depends on your position and employer. I can tell you there's not nearly enough parking for everyone who works in that building in the attached garage. It's also a public parking garage, so I doubt most are providing parking for anything but key personnel as a perq.

Almost definitely. I'm guessing between $100-150/mo. Some chance you could get that pre-tax (which is a huge crock, IMO, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't take it if I needed it). There's daily parking within a few blocks of that area for $8 or so per day, but I believe there are usually time restriction (enter before 9, exit after 5, or thereabouts). Light rail stops nearby, as do a number of buses. Of course, Midtown is great, as are a lot of the neighborhoods within 2-3 miles of that location. Walking to work is ideal, but a bike is even faster and that location is a little more bike-friendly than it used to be after the addition of bike lanes on a few of the streets in the area.

A monthly light rail/bus pass is $100, and some employers will help subsidize that cost (and the fact that you can't take that pre-tax, or employers can't write it off, is a shame.) During peak hours there is light rail every 15 minutes and several buses that run on 12-15 minute intervals right next to the building.

I believe you do have a pre-tax option, if it's offered. Here's what our building says:
Benefits of Payroll Deduction:
  • Pre-tax benefit-–Monthly transit pass purchases are eligible for a pre-tax exemption (Note: A pre-tax exemption means that the transit portion is deducted from the gross salary prior to any state or federal taxes. This reduces taxable income.)


To the OP, you can also get discounted occasional use parking passes from the city if you don't drive regularly.
