Before you get started, here’s some background information if you’re looking to save money.
1. Be flexible about location to save over $100 – The higher demand for a parking spot, the more expensive it will be. If you’re willing to park a little further away from your desired location, you can save hundreds of dollars.
For best results, consider lots or garages within a 6 block radius of your destination.
2. Consider what time of day you need parking - Something you may not realize is that there are actually a lot of monthly parking options. Be careful to not overpay for a monthly parking option you don’t really need.
If you commute to the city during the business week, for instance, you could pay a different monthly parking rate than someone who only needs parking on the weekends.
Check out this blog post for a full rundown of your monthly parking options.

5. Where can Milwaukee parking permits be purchased?
Milwaukee offers a mix of street, meter, and garage parking. Unmarked streets are for free parking, though as you can probably imagine, these spots are hard to come by. Some streets have limited parking after hours or on weekends. If you plan to be downtown past 2 a.m., you’ll need a night parking permit, which can be obtained here. Instead of applying a permit to your car, you register and your license plate is used for reference. Winter parking laws must also be followed. Some streets are completely blocked during the winter to allow for snowplows to pass.
Residential parking has several requirements and exceptions depending on the neighborhood. Residents in homes built before 1970 can apply for a residential nonconforming use day pass, which allows street parking at the cost of $10 a year. You can read more about these requirements here.
Some garages will let you store your motorcycle during the winter months, but you will pay the same rate as a car.
A quick Craigslist search can provide some starting points. Make sure you review the terms so you get a heated garage with 24/7 access.
RV / TRAILER PARKING:
There are several RV parks surrounding the city, but parking garages will not accommodate them. You would need to find either an open lot or a storage unit like Life Storage, CubeSmart, and PublicStorage are all good options.
