When parking is the question… The Authority is the answer!

What We Do

The Allentown Parking Authority manages, supervises and administers an efficient system of both on-street metered parking and off-street parking within the City of Allentown. The on-street program consists of 1500 metered spaces, which are regularly checked and monitored by our officers. There are various permits available for our metered parking spaces for contractors and laborers, special events and more. Likewise, the ownership and operation of seven parking garages downtown comprises a large portion of our off-street operation. These seven garages total approximately 4355 parking spaces. In addition, the Authority operates and/or leases 22 surface lots, totaling another 761 parking spaces. We take your safety very seriously, keeping these lots and garages monitored at all time.
