ParkBOI E-Permit

Parking Services is currently exploring the possibility of a new on-street permit program. These permits are called ParkBOI E-Permits and would allow permit holders to park in specific on-street areas in downtown for a monthly fee. While these are not guaranteed spots, they are a reliable option in currently unregulated areas around the City. Please note that these areas will be regulated starting in July. For more information, please fill out this form to be notified of any upcoming permit options.  

Twilight E-Permit

A Twilight E-Permit is an electronic permit (that uses your vehicle’s license plate as a permit), that allows parking in perimeter areas after 3pm. This monthly permit is designed for downtown employees who work later afternoon or evening shifts. There is no lottery to limit the number of Twilight E-Permits, but additional permit sales may be limited based on parking availability. The cost is $15/month and allows parking in parking meters in zone 3 as well as timed zones (excluding loading zones and residential parking areas). Click here to register and for more information.
