Parking Information

Parking Tips

As of March 2010, regular two-hour meters cost $1.50 an hour, and long-term meters (up to 10 hours) cost $1.00 an hour. Both types of meters are enforced from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday - Saturday.

Parking is prohibited at meters in designated rush hour zones from 7 a.m. - 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. Please read the meters before you park! Also know that broken meters are not free passes. They are technically off-limits and could land you a ticket!
