In order to support local businesses and safely stimulate economic recovery, effective Monday, June 1, 2020 and for the remainder of the year, metered parking enforcement will cease after 6 pm citywide. In conjunction with this change, regular parking meter enforcement will resume between the hours of 9 am and 6 pm.
Additionally, to support food and beverage employees returning to work, parking in CARTA's park-and-ride HOP lot, located at 995 Morrison Drive, will be offered for free for the remainder of the year.
"It's critical that we continue to do everything we can to support our small and locally-owned businesses as they work to reopen safely," Mayor John Tecklenburg said. "These free parking initiatives are a small but important part of our larger effort to keep Charleston healthy and strong throughout this unprecedented time."
