Free 2-hour parking set to start in downtown for the summer

Starting June 3, the city will offer two hours of free time on Fridays for on-street metered parking in downtown Lansing and in Old Town.

“Summer is a great time to encourage people to get downtown or to Old Town and visit some of our great local restaurants and shops,” Mayor Andy Schor said in a press release. “By offering free, on-street metered parking every Friday, we hope to encourage residents and visitors to shop and eat local.”

The free parking — like the program that took place for the month of December 2021 — will continue through Sept. 2. Maximum time limits in parking zones and safety violations will continue to be enforced.
