"Rolling Rule"

On street parking and city lots are convenient spaces for folks doing business in downtown Bozeman. That's why we limit the time for free parking during the business day. In 2003, the Bozeman City Commission adopted a new law to prevent someone from moving their vehicle within the same block or parking lot to avoid the time limit. Moving your vehicle within the same 'block face' - or city parking lot - to avoid the 2 hour limit, or leaving to return to the same block face or lot within 3 hours, may result in an overtime parking fine. (Section 36.04.260 Bozeman Municipal Code)

48 Hour Violations

The City of Bozeman requires that all vehicles parked on city streets move every 48 hours (Section 36.04.260 Bozeman Municipal Code). This is necessary to be sure that the public streets are being used for appropriate parking, not the long term storage of vehicles, campers, etc. The Parking Services Division enforces this regulation with a $30 citation. After the issuance of two (2) consecutive citations, a vehicle will be turned over to the Code Enforcement Division to be towed off the street. For more information on "48 hour" violations contact Ed Meece, Parking Program Manager.
