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.
