Daily Fee Parking

Alternate Parking Options Due to Water Tower West Demolition

To help mitigate the temporary loss of daily fee parking spaces due to the demolition of Water Tower West (the former City of Naperville Public Works facility), the 53 permit spaces in the Burlington Lot which typically become available for daily fee use after 9 a.m. are now available prior to 9 a.m. as standard daily fee parking for $2 per day.

Permit holders who use the Burlington Lot are asked not to park in these numbered spaces, located along the north side of the parking lot, so that they can remain available for daily fee use. Permit holders may park in these spaces if the rest of the Burlington Lot is full.

As a reminder, commuters impacted by the Water Tower West demolition may also consider alternate commuting options, including the Route 59 Metra Station and Pace Suburban Bus. The space formerly occupied by Water Tower West is slated to reopen as a surface parking lot in October 2019 and will provide approximately 250 additional daily fee parking spaces to commuters.


The daily fee parking spaces are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. At each train station, the daily fee parking spaces cost $2 per day; however, the marked daily fee spaces at the DuPage Children's Museum and 190 E. 5th Avenue (Naperville Metra Station) cost $5 per day. The fee is paid at the automatic payment machines located on the South platform at the Naperville Station and on the North platform at the Route 59 Station. Please note: Daily fee machines cannot dispense cash refunds. Please use exact change.
