The City has extended its parking payment system to include most of the metered parking spaces on Front Street and installed a new kiosk on the south side of the downtown Metra station. These changes make the payment process more convenient for users of the daily commuter fee parking spaces west of the train station.
As part of the City’s transition from using parking meters to more convenient parking payment methods, the City has deactivated the commuter parking space meters located on Front Street between Manchester Bridge and Gary Avenue. People using these spaces can now pay either using the Passport Parking app, www.passportparking.com, or by using cash or credit at on of the City’s parking kiosks. Several 2-hour customer parking meters will remain active for patrons of businesses in the area.
Please note that whichever way you choose to pay, you will need to know your license plate number, which you will enter either at the kiosk or on your mobile phone (if using the Passport Parking app), as well as your Parking Zone number. Parking Zone numbers are indicated on signs throughout the City’s parking areas. The spaces along W. Front Street are in Zone 62508.
