Parking in downtown Madison
There are a very limited number of short term parking stall (an hour or less) on the Capitol Square. Visitors parking on the square should be certain that they are NOT parking in a reserved stall; violators will be ticketed. Stall holders who have unauthorized vehicles in them, should contact the Capitol Police directly at (608) 267-8797.
For most visitors one of the city operated ramps in the downtown area is the best option; the City of Madison has more information (first map below).
