Parking in Downtown

In Downtown, the City of Wichita works to efficiently and effectively provide public parking in order to contribute to the success of Wichita. In Downtown Wichita, the City operates and maintains approximately 3,520 on-street spaces and approximately 9,000 of-street spaces.


Policies and Plans

The Project Downtown Plan recommends that the City work to expand transportation choices by locating parking to improve access and stimulate re-investment. In order to accomplish this, the City of Wichita works to accomplish the following:

  • Implement the Downtown Parking and Mobility Management Plan to improve utilization;
  • Prioritize and invest in parking for places where it:
    • serves multiple uses 24/7,
    • unlocks “refill” opportunity for significant buildings lacking parking,
    • expands development opportunity on prime sites through efficient land use, and
    • promotes walkability;
  • invests in public parking structures as crucial downtown infrastructure;
  • institute transportation demand management and improve walking, transit, and bicycling options – to reduce congestion and future parking demand; and
  • provide on-street parking.
