The Department of Public Works operates and maintains Burlington's public parking facilities. The City owns and operates 1,612 public parking spaces in three parking structures downtown; 1,080 on street parking meters; and 176 metered parking spaces in seven surface lots. Additionally, the department operates the City-owned Airport parking facility in South Burlington.
DPW has been working for over a year with the Community & Economic Development Office and the Burlington Business Association on the Downtown Parking Improvement Initiative. The recent changes to parking downtown, including new technology and new rates and hours, are part of this larger initiative which seeks to improve the customer experience and ensure a sustainable parking system. To learn more about this initiative, and to find the most up-to-date information about parking in Burlington, please visit www.parkburlington.com.
