Updates to Parking Rates

The City of Ithaca will revert back to standard on-street parking rates of $1.50 per hour, effective Tuesday, September 8th. Additionally, one hour of free parking will no longer be offered in City parking garages.  

Enforcement of on-street parking and garage fees had been suspended in response to the New York State PAUSE, enacted on March 22nd by Governor Cuomo. In conjunction with our region moving into Phase 4 of reopening, the City of Ithaca resumed enforcement of parking meters on June 26 at a rate of 50 cents per hour. The rebound in parking demand in Downtown and Collegetown is the impetus for reverting to standard on-street and short-term garage parking fees. 

The City of Ithaca continues to maintain the following downtown curbside locations where businesses can conduct short-term curbside delivery service for free while their customers remain in the comfort of their own vehicles:

·         Seneca St. and Buffalo St. both near the Dewitt Mall
·         Tioga/Seneca St. at the Commons
·         Cayuga St. at the Commons
·         Green St. in front of Press Bay Alley
