COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, The City of Colorado Springs’ Parking Enterprise has suspended enforcement of parking meters through at least May 25. Time limited spots will also not be enforced at this time.
The suspension includes parking meters in downtown Colorado Springs and Old Colorado City, along with structured parking. The City is also extending availability of designated curbside parking spaces with orange signs for curbside services from restaurants and businesses. Drivers must stay in their vehicle while parked at these designated curbside spaces.
The following enforcement activities will continue:
- Fire hydrant zones and fire lanes
- “No Stopping” or “No Parking” zones to promote safety
- Loading Zones
- Mountain Metro Transit stops
- Special parking permitted spaces, including but not limited to accessible spaces, reserved spaces, restricted spaces
- Electric vehicle, compact, reserved or other signed parking spaces in structures
- Parking on or within 20 feet of a crosswalk
- Blocking driveways or alleys
- Parking in travel lanes, including bike and transit lanes
- Obedience to angle signs or markings
- ADA violations
- Extended / overnight parking at meters
The City has signed a contract with ParkMobile to provide a mobile payment option for customers. This service is expected to be available this summer to provide “touchless” payment using the ParkMobile app at parking meters. Updates will be provided at www.ColoradoSprings.gov/Parking and on the city’s social media accounts @CityofCOS.
