Parking fees apply Monday to Friday from 7:30 am until 7:30 pm. Parking can be purchased through the Honk Mobile app (Zone 9072) or through the Honk QR code (no app needed). The QR code is available in the main entrance vestibule or at the reception desk. Parking can also be purchased with cash or credit at Grebel's reception desk. Parking rates are $3/hour up to $9 per day.

Grebel has six charging stations available for EV charging. A vehicle utilizing the charging stations must have a valid permit or have purchased parking via Honk. As of May 1, 2023 there will be a usage charge of $1.00 per hour for Grebel's EV charging stations. You are encouraged to move your vehicle to another parking spot once your charge is complete as we are anticipating a high demand for EV charging.

Please note that a parking permit is not a guarantee of a parking spot.
