DASH & Summer Valet Parking

Summer Downtown Valet

The Background Story

Historic Downtown McKinney offers over 1,500 parking spaces. Visitors may park in 15 lots across the downtown area, including two parking garages. Through the years, merchants and visitors have requested offering valet parking for the downtown area, and with the completion of the Chestnut Commons garage, there was enough inventory for city officials to consider this request.

Valet parking is an amenity offered in other retail/lifestyle destinations – including Watters Creek, Downtown Plano, Legacy West and the Shops at Legacy.

Surveys were distributed to downtown merchants at the end of April, and 74% of the businesses surveyed expressed favorable interest in a trial period for valet. On Monday, April 22, City of McKinney Council agreed to move forward with downtown summer valet from June 7 to August 31, 2019.

Current Service Offerings

The pilot valet service is provided by Dallas Valet from June 7 to August 31. Valet vehicles are re-located to remote and underutilized lots. 

Since the trial period has begun, the valet service has provided ‘front row’ experiences for approximately 400 vehicles each weekend.

Sewell’s Audi of McKinney is a proud sponsor of the program. By having their sponsorship, the cost to patrons is $5.00. Without the sponsorship, customers would pay up to $10.00 for the service. 

Many businesses in Historic Downtown McKinney are validating customer valet tickets or offering a special to patrons using the valet service. Participating merchants vary, please ask specific stores for more information.

For convenience, valet is located in a central location adjacent to MPAC.
