Who we are

The Austin Parking Reform Coalition is working to eliminate costly parking mandates to allow more people to live in Austin. The Austin Parking Reform Coalition is made up of nonprofits, community groups, and other leaders of the Austin region working together to make Austin a more affordable and sustainable city. Current policies discourage public transportation use and increase the city’s carbon footprint. We envision a future where our city’s policies prioritize sustainability, public safety, housing production, and accessible public transportation.

The impacts of Parking Mandates


Parking mandates drive up the cost of building new homes and reduce the number of homes that can be built.

Climate Change

Parking mandates cause more driving and increase emissions from transportation.


Parking mandates impose car dependency and force those without cars to subsidize car users.
