Update On Downtown Troy Parking Changes



As previously announced, the City of Troy has begun the next phase of parking updates in the downtown business district. These changes include the installation of upgraded parking kiosks and, in some areas, the relocation of existing meters to other streets downtown.

While these may look like the existing parking kiosks already located downtown, they will be upgraded with new technology to make them more user-friendly. Please note that these units are NOT yet operational and will be activated only once all the units are in place. By increasing the number of on-street meters, we hope to encourage those that frequent downtown Troy for longer periods of time on weekdays to utilize the existing parking lots and garages, making it easier for visitors and short-term users to maneuver the city.

Current parking regulations will remain in effect, including 2-hour parking in currently metered zones and free night and weekend parking in all Cityowned parking lots and garages.

These are the first of several iterative changes to the downtown parking system designed to promote a vibrant, walkable downtown. We will continue reviewing our management systems and working to institute best practices as part of our effort to deliver a more innovative and convenient parking solution for our users. The upgrade and expansion of our kiosk program, along with instituting pay-by-cell services and dedicated off-street visitor parking, is an important step in the right direction.

Additional changes – including online permitting, creation of loading zones, enhanced crosswalks, updated parking zones, improved wayfinding signage, and updated maps on the City website – are planned for the coming months.
