Bus Parking

Chicago Park District - Bus Parking We have made it easier for buses and tour operators to purchase parking through our internet-based Click and Park system. We implemented this program to provide bus parking at the Wilson Lot for buses that are used to transport people to the Lincoln Park Zoo. We have also expanded this program with an additional link for use at the Adler Lot for buses transporting people to the Soldier Field / Museum Campus and to the Museum of Science and Industry.
