FREE Meter Parking EVERY Wednesday

PPA offers FREE meter parking in Center City after 5pm on Wednesday evenings, except for rush-hour zones, which are free after 6:30 pm.

The boundaries are from the Delaware River to the Schuylkill River and from Bainbridge to Spring Garden Streets.

Rush-hour streets running east to west are between Market and Chestnut Streets. Rush-hour streets running north to south are even numbered streets in the morning (2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, 10th, etc.) and odd numbered in the evening, (3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, etc.)

Note: some streets have rush hour times in the morning and the evening.

Metered parking is also FREE for Old City’s First Friday (which happens on the first Friday of every month) after 5:00 p.m. between Callowhill and Walnut Streets and between Front and 5th Streets.

This only applies to meter/kiosk enforcement; time limits still apply & other violations, such as stopping prohibited, or other unauthorized parking infractions are still enforced.
