What We Do

Convenient and affordable parking helps make your visit
to Hartford a wonderful experience.

HPA is a well-run public parking system that stimulates economic and community development in Hartford. We know that parking plays a key role in visitation and revitalization of our Capital City – so we need to be Connecticut’s leader in parking technology, innovation, and customer service. We serve as a convener and coordinator on City parking matters. We also inform, educate, and assist the public with understanding of how to park legally and safely. Plus, we help with handling payments and appeals of parking infractions – because citations happen and are a necessary part of making parking accessible for everyone.

You have lots of parking
choices in Hartford – and
not just parking lots.

Hartford has nearly 50 public and privately-owned surface lots and indoor garages where you can park throughout the City. The HPA is responsible for overseeing metered and regulated parking spaces on Hartford streets. Also, the HPA operates and maintains the City-owned parking facilities. These include the MAT (Main and Trumbull) Garage and Hartford Public Library parking deck.

HPA is here to inform you about parking and make sure that finding a surface lot, an on-street space, or an indoor garage is easy and convenient to where you want to go. The good news is that parking options in Hartford are now more accessible and convenient than ever to:

  • Workplaces
  • Shopping, Dining, and Lodging
  • Arts & Culture, Entertainment, Sports,
    Science Center, Convention Center, and many other attractions
  • Health & Wellness Centers
  • Connecticut River and Parks
