Downtown Provo has over 10,000 parking spaces--over 58 acres! You'll want to use parking garages for stays longer than two hours. See a printable version of the downtown parking map here.
See an interactive map of downtown parking here. Type in an address and find parking near your destination!
The streets south of BYU campus are full of parked cars more than any other area in the city. Be a good neighbor by limiting the number of cars your family has parked on the road. Replace driving with public transit, walking, or biking and you might not need that extra car--think of all the money you'll save!
Students, both BYU and UVU will give you free transit passes. By combining bike, bus, and train, you can get most anywhere you need without a car. Please consider not bringing one to college!
Due to high demand and limited supply, some areas of Provo are designated permit parking areas--meaning parking is mostly limited to residents of the area. Residents can purchase parking permits here.
Our parking enforcement crew works around the clock to keep our streets clear and safe. Pay your ticket here.
The healthiest, cheapest, and most fun way to get around
Provo is designated a silver-level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists; check out Provo's report card here. With about 4,000 Provo residents biking to work each day--and thousands more biking to school--Provo has about three times as many people biking for transportation than the average US city (3.3% vs. 1.1%). If you haven't ridden a bike in a while, join thousands of your neighbors who do it safely each day--try it out!
Biking can be faster than driving in urban areas because you don't have to search for somewhere to park; usually it's right in front of your destination. Check out a map of bike parking spots here. Do you see missing racks? Add them to the map!
Provo City is slowly reshaping its streets to make them safer for biking. If you'd like to encourage more investment in bicycle infrastructure, consider joining BikeProvo's advocacy efforts.
Up to nineteen percent of residents in east Provo (Senate District 16) walk to work or school each day. Walking is healthy, inexpensive, fast in dense areas, and stress-relieving.
