New “Go Green” Program — Save $20 on Parking

You may have noticed that Galveston parking rates on many lots have shot up lately. Due to a fee increase charged to independent parking lots to drop off passengers at the port, the businesses have had to charge more just to combat their rising costs.

Needless to say, the increased fees charged by the Port of Galveston have been controversial. In an effort to combat the change, one lot — EZ Cruise Parking — is taking a unique approach. They recently emailed out a new “Go Green” promotion that can save some passengers a lot of money if they are willing to skip the shuttle and walk a little bit.

Here’s the scoop: Since the port charges the parking lot for every trip its shuttle makes to drop off cruise passengers, EZ Cruise Parking is offering up to a $20 parking discount to those willing to instead walk from the lot to the port. This helps save the parking lot in fees charged by the port, and it is passing the savings on to you.

All you have to do is prepay on their website, and use coupon code “20parkwalk” if you are taking a 7-day cruise or “15parkwalk” if taking a 4-5 day cruise. For a 7-day cruise the prepaid price goes from $65 to only $45. That’s one of the lowest rates around.
