BDOT is always up to something new! In addition to managing current facilities, we have several ongoing projects. These projects help promote a high quality of life, a healthy environment, and strong economic vitality. 






With ParkMobile, Birmingham drivers can pay for parking using a smartphone app instead of using coins. This contactless option helps keep residents and visitors safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
