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.
