Here are some quick parking tips that are good to know and that will save you time and money.

Parking Meters

  • Your first 15 minutes are free at 30 minute yellow-domed meters, if the meter is at 0:00. Just push the button. Remember to wait for the time to register before paying the meter.

  • Parking All Day? Look for green-domed meters. They offer up to ten hours of parking at a discounted rate.

  • Did you know that if you receive an expired meter violation notice and have not had one in the last six months, it can be waived?

  • Parking meters may be available near your destination. They are FREE after 5 p.m. on weekdays and all day Saturday, Sunday and holidays.

On Street

  • Look for one of the 280 spaces that have 90-minute free parking. These sections are enforced from 6:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m., except Sunday and holidays. 

Attended Facilities

  • The Kalamazoo Mall parking ramp currently accepts debit/credit card payments. We hope to provide this service in all our ramps and lots in the future. 

  • Always make sure that your car is safely locked.

  • Do not leave valuable things visible in the car.

  • Keep in mind the level number where you’ve parked your vehicle. This will help you to find your car easily when you return.
