Parking Permits

The Village of Winnetka provides unreserved, on-street and off-street parking for various users. On-street parking is permitted, unless otherwise signed, daily from 6:00 AM to 2:00 AM. Off-street parking is permitted in select parking lots for train commuters, employees in the business districts, and other users. Please read Village signs carefully before parking your vehicle.

Commuter Parking Permits

Train
 
 

The purpose of these permits is to facilitate parking for residents and non-residents who utilize the train for commuting. Those interested in a permit must complete a commuter application. Daily Train User Parking Permits can only be purchased in person at Village Hall. The pro-rated price, depending on the month of purchase, is as follows:

Month Resident Non-Resident
January & July $ 100.00 $ 220.00
February & August $ 83.33 $ 183.33
March & September $ 66.67 $ 146.67
April & October $ 50.00 $ 110.00
May & November $ 33.33 $ 73.33
June & December $ 16.67 $ 36.67

The Village designates parking areas around the three train stations (Indian Hill, Elm Street, and Hubbard Woods) for commuter parking, as highlighted in the parking maps below:

Commuter cars must display a valid daily or six-month parking permit in these lots. In some areas, a valid Village sticker must be displayed in addition to a daily or six-month commuter permit. The purchase of a permit does not guarantee that a spot will be available in the most convenient location.Parking_Sign

Business Employee Parking Permits

The purpose of these permits is to facilitate parking for employees who work for local businesses at a discounted price of $10 per year (July 1st-June 30th). Employee parking permits can be obtained in person at Village Hall.

Employees are required to provide the following documentation in order to receive a permit:

  • Completed signed employee parking permit application
  • Proof of employment (including a paycheck stub dated within the last 60 days, items mailed to the applicant at a Winnetka business address within the last 60 days, or a letter from the employer on company letterhead listing all current employees. Business cards or name tags are NOT sufficient proof of employment).

The purchase of a permit does not guarantee that a spot will be available in the most convenient location. Employers have the option of sending the Village a list of all employees on their company letterhead and a completed employee parking permit application for each employee. The Village will then process these permits together—saving time for both the business’ employees and the Village.

Note: Business Employee Parking Pemits expire on June 30th annually and new applications should be completed prior to July 1st. Individuals serving as residential caretakers or nannies are NOT eligible to purchase this form of parking pass.
