Parking at UPMC Hamot

Valet Parking

Main Hospital valet parking is available:
Monday-Friday 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Valet parking is available to everyone, but is ideal for patients and visitors who are from out of town or who find walking longer distances a challenge. It also allows the caregiver or family member to stay with the patient rather than having to drop them off and park the vehicle.
A valet will greet you at the main entrance to UPMC Hamot on State Street and take your vehicle to be parked. When you are ready to leave, call 814-877-5454 15 minutes in advance of your departure and your vehicle will be returned to the front entrance. The cost for all day at the ramp is $10. All day valet parking is also $10 and provides a more convenient experience while at the hospital.

Emergency Department Patients

While visiting the emergency department, parking is available in the parking ramp. One ticket per patient will be validated at the ER registration office.

For Short Stays

A metered parking lot located at Third and French streets near UPMC Hamot's Emergency Department and Outpatient Registration entrance is ideal for short stays of one to two hours.
A public parking ramp operated by the Erie Parking Authority is located just south of UPMC Hamot, between State and French streets. To park in this ramp, enter on East Third Street. Hourly and daily rates are offered.

For Longer Stays

For extended visits, temporary parking passes may be available at a discounted rate. Check with the ramp parking attendant for more information.
For patients and guests who prefer parking in a free lot, the Park & Ride shuttle service is available. The shuttle is a small fee, and is offered Monday through Friday by the Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority from the Park & Ride lot on the Bayfront Highway (about 1 mile west of UPMC Hamot).
The shuttle service also runs from the Intermodal Center located northeast of the Bayfront Highway and Holland Street intersection Monday through Saturday. Passengers are dropped off at the main entrance to UPMC Hamot.
More information on where to park and how to pick up the shuttle, including a schedule, updated fares, and a map, visit or call 814-877-7007.

Security Escorts

If you are leaving the medical center after dark, a member of the UPMC Hamot security team will be happy to escort you to the adjacent parking areas. Ask the staff at the information desk in the main lobby to call security for you or call 814-877-6666.
