Click here​ to purchase a monthly or semi-annual (valid 7/1-12/31) commuter parking permit

​**The permit is valid once you receive it and the permit is 

being displayed properly in your vehicle**

Changes have been made to the 2022 Commuter Parking Permits in order to lower costs and increase flexibility for commuters. These changes are in response to the smaller pool of commuters using Village parking lots due to the COVID-19 pandemic and remote working. 

  • ​The Village is offering a temporary 25% discount from the 2020 rate for the 2022 resident and non-resident annual, semi-annual, and monthly permits. 
  • The 2022 permits are interchangeable between Downtown Glenview and Glen of North Glenview Train Stations. (For record keeping purposes, you will be asked on the application which station is your primary choice; however, you may park at either station). 

            ​
