City of Bloomington 2023 On-line Employee Parking Permit Program and Showers Lot Pilot Parking Cash-Out Incentive Program 

Dear City Employees:

It is that time of year again and we are happy to announce a $500 incentive for employees who work at City Hall and choose another way to commute besides driving their vehicles. Below is the Parking Cash-Out Pilot Program policy that aims to reduce the City’s impact on carbon emissions by incentivizing employees to bike, walk, skate, scooter, use public transportation, or commute to work in another way than by a single-occupancy vehicle. 

Eligible employees may receive a 2023 Showers parking lot permit at no cost, or they may forgo a permit for the remainder of the year to receive a $500 stipend. The $500 stipend will be added to the eligible employee’s paycheck and as required by law, will be taxed. Employees must request either the permit or the stipend through their online parking account by using this link: by December 30, 2022.  Once logged into your account, please click on the announcement for further instructions.

Employees may email feedback regarding this program to  Questions about how to request a City Hall Showers permit or how to request a stipend should be directed to the Parking Services Division. Questions about the status of a stipend should be directed to the Controller’s Office and questions about eligibility requirements should be directed to Human Resources.
