Better Rates. Better Buffalo.

Supporting Our City

Convenient parking ramps, lots and standard low rates are the hallmark of Buffalo Civic Auto Ramps (BCAR). But we've got one other benefit no one else can claim. Park your vehicle in a BCAR lot or ramp and you're also supporting the City of Buffalo.  

BCAR is a non-profit entity, formed to manage downtown Buffalo parking facilities. Our goal? To work in partnership with the City of Buffalo to provide safe, affordable, high quality public parking at the most reasonable cost to you, the consumer. 

Read more about how your parking fees are invested back into Buffalo to improve parking lots, ramps, roads and other public needs in the City of Buffalo.


Close To It All
