Downtown Wichita > Get Around > Parking
We have parking for you. Downtown Wichita not only offers many exciting things to do, it also has plenty of parking for ease of accessibility. Downtown provides multiple options including convenient street parking for a short stay, covered parking for those days you just don’t want to get out in the weather and surface parking lots – both long and short term. Here is a quick overview of the types of parking available in downtown.
Event: For specific event parking, view the list below, visit the interactive parking map or download the following printed maps.
Event Parking Reservations: Parking spots can be reserved in advance (for a fee) during large events at INTRUST Bank Arena. Reservations can be made at bestarenaparking.com and Front Row Parking.
Street: Downtown has over 2,000 on-street parking spaces and most have time limitations. Look for signs that post time periods.
Customer: These spaces are available for people visiting a specific business. The spaces are usually identified with signs and are often close to building entrances.
Daily: Short term, public parking lots provide parking for an hour or day. Most lots are identified with the recognizable and colorful “P” parking symbol.
Daily/Monthly: When entering a lot, look for signs about the public use of the space and where to pay for daily parking.
Monthly: A number of parking lots are leased on a monthly basis. While anyone can lease a spot daily or hourly parking is not allowed.
Covered: Almost every garage in downtown Wichita allows hourly or daily parking. All parking garages in Old Town are free and open to the public. A number of garages are open and available after 5pm to accommodate downtown events and activities.
Options such as the free Q-Line Trolley and Electric Scooter Rentals are also available. Learn more about these transportation services.
Parking Signs: Look for parking signs. They will tell you if you can park in that location, how long you can park there, and during what hours you are allowed to park.
Parking Meters: The parking meters located throughout Downtown Wichita are enforced for 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. Meters and restricted parking areas around Century II and the Library are enforced seven days a week until 11pm with the exception of holidays. Don’t feed the meter. According to City Code Ordinance 11.68.090 it is illegal to feed or plug a meter all day and stay parked at a metered space longer than the allotted time.
