Parking Facilities

The Parking Utility operates and maintains several public parking ramps and lots in downtown La Crosse. We welcome you to park FREE on weekends and weekday evenings within our downtown parking ramps. You must pre-pay and register your vehicle at the pay stations or using the PassportParking app at all times from 6AM through 6PM, Monday through Friday, or you will be subject to fines. You must pre-register to receive your three free hours during this time also (available only at pay stations). You may only take advantage of the three hours free, once per calendar day, or you will be subject to fines.
