Please be aware there is no parking on Pier 33 Alcatraz Landing, with the exception of limited accessible parking spaces, available on a first come, first serve basis.
On-street parking in the Fisherman's Wharf area can be difficult to find, especially during the peak summer visitation season, and nearly every street space has a parking meter with day of the week and hourly restrictions. We strongly suggest you take public transit or arrange to be dropped off and picked up at Pier 33 Alcatraz Landing.
Visitors should be aware that most meters in San Francisco have a two hour time limit. (A visit to Alcatraz and back takes a minimum of 3 hours.) Hours and rates vary so check the meter for hours of operation and rate. Most meter rates are between $2.00 and $3.50 per hour. All parking meters in San Francisco accept payment by coin, pay-by-phone, credit cards (Visa, MasterCard and Discover), and the SFMTA parking card. There are two special types of meters: green-capped meters and red- or yellow- capped meters. Green meters have either a 15 or 30 minute time limit. Red and yellow meters are designated for commercial loading; yellow for all commercial vehicles and red for vehicles with six or more wheels. For more info, click here.
