Parking downtown & midtown

Recommended Posts

I kept searching for this on mobile but it looks like search isn't exactly working 100% so please let me know if this thread exists already. 

 

I noticed all the signs now say 3 hour max Monday through Saturday. Didn't they used to read free after 6pm? Is anyone aware of a changing to parking in these areas?

Downtown managment district says it's still free after 6 pm

The meters accept cash, credit cards and pay-by-phone; hourly prices vary depending on location. Meters are FREE after 6 pm Monday-Saturday and all day Sunday

 

City of Houston website still says that too

Question: When are parking meters enforced?
Answer: Parking meters are  enforced Monday through Saturday, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., except where pay station or posted signs indicate otherwise. Parking meters are not enforced on Official City Holidays.

That's exactly what I saw online too, with the hope that this was still the latest info on parking downtown. I could have sworn the signs actually had designated times on them along with the 3 hrs max. Perhaps not! 

 

Thanks cspwal.

It is 5:52 and my ParkMobile app will only allow me to pay for a max of 8 minutes.  I think the rules are unchanged.

I don't recall ever seeing signage that said parking is free after 6:00

 

The old school parking meters had a message to that effect inside the little window that showed how much time was left.  The new meters just won't accept payment.

Yes, if by "new meters", you mean the ones that were installed 3-4 years ago?

Thanks everyone. Think my wife and I recalled what the signs said incorrectly. Good to see it's still free at night.
