The goal of the City of Austin Parking Enterprise Division is to make parking convenient and user-friendly throughout the City.

Parking Enterprise manages on-street parking to balance the needs for residents, businesses and visitors to our city, while promoting compliance with all City parking ordinances. This includes parking meters, parking and valet enforcement, commercial vehicle loading zones, residential parking permits, musician loading zones and permits, car share parking and more.

In addition, this division regulates all ground transportation service providers such as taxicab, limousine, charter, shuttle, airport shuttle, pedicab and horse-drawn carriage companies, assuring that both the companies and the drivers comply with City Codes.

The Austin Transportation Department does not manage private off-street parking lots and garages.
