City Council Eliminates Commuter Parking Permits Beginning Jan. 1
At its Sept. 5 meeting, City Council approved an ordinance to eliminate quarterly commuter parking permits and transition all spaces at the Naperville and Route 59 train station lots to daily fee parking. Please note: All existing quarterly commuter parking permits are still valid through Dec. 31.
Beginning Jan. 1, commuter parking permits will no longer be accepted and all commuters must pay for a daily space. A new daily rate of $3 for all spaces will also take effect at this time. A weekly discount of 5% and monthly discount of 10% will be offered.
