Division of Parking Facilities

City Parking and Downtown Lots

The Division of Parking Facilities provides for construction, maintenance, and operation of city-owned parking garages and lots throughout downtown Cleveland.

A listing of downtown public parking lots, fees, and operating hours can be found below.

Parking Tickets and Snow Bans

This Division operates an on-street parking program which enforces the City's parking codes by issuing tickets. It is also responsible for maintaining parking meters. Parking tickets can be paid online or in person at the Clerk of Courts Parking Violations Bureau.

Snow bans are issued by the City when there are large snowstorms. A “General” ban means no parking on main streets. An “All-City” ban means no parking on any city streets. The bans reduce the time it takes to restore normal traffic, as well as the amount of extra shoveling required for residents.

Parking Meter Repair,  Parking Tickets at Broken Meter

Report broken meter: 216.664.3566 - Open 24/7
Call regarding parking ticket: 216.664.4744 - Weekdays 8 am to 4 pm

Cars parked at broken meters may receive tickets because ticket writers do not have the authority to determine if meters are broken. Those who receive tickets at broken meters are asked to call and report the meter number to the Meter Division, and call the Parking Violations Bureau to speak with a customer service representative about the parking ticket.
