Free On-Street Parking on Saturdays in July

Free Saturday On-Street Parking this July!

On-street metered parking will be FREE on Saturdays in Downtown Chapel Hill during the month of July.

How will you know? About 200 parking meters will be bagged! These are all highly visible and desirable parking spaces with convenient access for residents and visitors to shop, dine and enjoy Downtown Chapel Hill.  Remember that the usual two-hour limit for metered parking will be in effect. And parking at Town decks and surface parking lots is not included in the freebie offering. 

Responding to concerns expressed by businesses and other stakeholders about parking availability, the Town of Chapel Hill and the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership have worked together to design and propose the pilot program.

As always, we encourage all downtown businesses to guide customers to for the best downtown parking information.  

Have a great weekend!
