The purpose and mission of the enhanced PARK Macon-Bibb parking program is to balance the parking needs of the community with the dynamic interests of businesses, restaurants, employees, visitors and residents seeking to gain convenient access to available parking spaces in the Downtown area.
Welcome to the PARK Macon-Bibb website, which gives you access to valuable parking information for downtown Macon
HOW TO AVOID A PARKING TICKET
- Download the Passport Parking app to pay by phone. You get text or email reminders when your parking is about to expire!
- Do not park longer than 3 hours at a parking meter. Even if the meter is paid, you will be ticketed if parked in the same space longer than 3 hours.
- Park in a garage if parking long term. The hourly rates are cheaper to park in a garage and you do not have to move your vehicle every 3 hours!
- Keep a change roll in your glovebox. If parking for a few minutes, don’t risk it! Drop a nickel or dime in the meter. Even though the meters take credit card and mobile app payments, meters are a good way to make use of that spare change in your car.
Please find our Frequently Asked Questions below:
WHY IS THERE A THREE-HOUR LIMIT AT THE METERS?
PARK Macon-Bibb extended the time limit zones from 2 hours to 3 hours in an effort to better accommodate the needs of our stakeholders. The reason for time limit zones is to create turnover and additional parking spaces by moving long term parkers into the parking garages to ensure customers have a convenient place to park when parking for short term.
WHERE CAN I PARK LONGER THAN THREE HOURS?
If you need to park longer than 3 hours, we recommend parking in one of the parking garages downtown most of which are cheaper than parking at the meter. There is one PARK Macon-Bibb garage located at 440 Mulberry Street that charges $1.00 per hour Monday through Friday from 7:00 am – 7:00 pm.
