The Parking Division oversees the operation of parking garages, parking lots, and on-street (metered) parking. Parking Services enforces parking regulations in the Central Business District, while the Police Department enforces parking regulations in residential areas.

Due to a high demand for parking in Downtown Iowa City, Parking Services promotes turnover of on-street (metered) parking spaces in the core of the Downtown. Customers with longer-term needs are encouraged to use the City garages or on streets in outlying areas. View this page for street meter hours of enforcement.

For more information on City parking regulations, please see Title 9 - Motor Vehicles and Traffic in the City Code.

In 2023, new equipment was added to the City's automated parking ramps. Watch this short video for an overview of the process and convenient payment options.
