In conjunction with our region moving into Phase 4 of reopening, the City of Ithaca will resume enforcement of parking meters starting this Friday, June 26, 2020. Additionally, free parking in all City parking garages will be reduced from three hours to one hour. Enforcement of on-street parking and garage fees had been suspended in response to the New York State PAUSE that was enacted on March 22nd by Governor Cuomo. 

All zones previously charging a $1.50 per hour rate will now be temporarily reduced to 50 cents per hour for ParkMobile Users and Pay Station users until further notice. ParkMobile’s 35 cent convenience fees are still in effect. Coin-only (aka lollipop) meters will continue to charge $1.50 per hour; however, ParkMobile and Pay Stations can be used in any location where coin-only meters are in place.

Downtown Ithaca and the City of Ithaca have also teamed up to create 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 vehicle. 

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