Downtown Parking Changes Delayed Until January 22



January 16, 2018

For Immediate Release

SAVANNAH, GA (January 16, 2018)— The City of Savannah is delaying its implementation of the new Parking Matters rate structure for parking downtown until January 22. This is due to the winter storm earlier this month which hampered efforts by parking services staff to distribute flyers reminding people about the changes.

Beginning January 22, the City will issue warnings on all vehicles that do not comply with the new extended parking hours and the City will place Parking Guides on these vehicles as well. That means citations will be issued Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and warnings will be issued after 5 p.m. and on Saturdays.

The City will begin issuing citations on vehicles that do not follow the new Parking Matters plan on January 29.

The parking changes include:

  • New rate zones—the price to park in the core downtown area (North of Oglethorpe Ave. between MLK, Jr. Blvd. and Habersham St.) is $2/hour. Outside that area motorists can expect to pay $1/hour or less. (see attached flyer). The new parking changes only effects on-street parking north of Liberty Street
  • Meter enforcement times have been extended from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and this now includes Saturdays.
  • Motorists can park as long as they would like at any metered space
  • Public Parking garages will still be available for use at regular rates and discounted rates for afternoon/evening employees.

Anyone who would like to pay for parking without feeding a meter can pay on a mobile device by downloading the “ParkSavannah” app. For more information about the changes and the app visit:
