Downtown Parking

In February 2020, Parking Services implemented the recommendations made in the Downtown Strategic Pparking Plan to better manage on-street parking access and availability. The plan provides a system-wide approach to better align on-street parking rates with off-street rates, streamline meter time limits and decrease confusion. The key changes made include:

  • Launched the ParkColumbus mobile payment app at all downtown meters
  • Adjusted meter time limits for more consistency. All meters are either 30 minute, 3 hours or no time limit.
  • Adjusted meter rates and implemented demand based pricing that includes evaluating rates and making adjustments every six months based on occupancy data.
