Allentown Parking Authority

How the Allentown Parking Authority can help you with your parking needs.

Tamara Weller


What we do:
The Allentown Parking Authority manages, supervises and administers an efficient system of both on-street and off-street parking within the City. The ownership and operation of four parking garages in downtown comprises a large portion of our off-street operation. These five garages total approximately 2,350 parking spaces. In addition, the Authority operates and/or leases 29 surface lots, which totals another 1,330 parking spaces.


When the question is parking…ask the Authority!


The Board of the Allentown Parking Authority, in response to anticipated demand, is considering building a parking structure, to consist of approximately 800 parking spaces, on the property known as the ‘Community Lot’, located at 13 S. 6th Street. The Board will consider any proposals related to a public/private participation as it pertains to the construction and/or eventual use of this facility and, as such, has prepared a Request for Proposals regarding a potential public/private design, construction and use of this parking facility for part or all of its expected use of more than 30 years. The RFP can be requested via email to and any and all persons or entities interested in being considered as a participant in this possible public/private venture are invited to respond to the RFP no later than April 16, 2014.
