Parking Downtown

City of East Lansing offices are currently closed for in-person transactions; however, staff are still available to serve community members. View the City’s COVID-19 Continuity of Operations Plan for departmental service information.

The Parking Division manages and maintains the City's municipal parking facilities, including seven parking garages, six surface lots and on-street meters. The parking system supports downtown businesses by providing customer parking and the merchant validation program. It also supports downtown office users and residents through the sale of discounted monthly permits.
