Parking in Downtown Rochester ramps is free for a limited time, thanks to the RDA and Rochester's CARES Act fund, should help downtown businesses dealt a major blow by Covid-19. Holly Masek, RDA executive director said,

“We still have some great weather coming our way to enjoy outdoor dining, and we’re heading into early holiday shopping season...“We hope the attraction of free parking will remind customers how fun and accessible avisit to downtown can be, and how mportant it is for local residents to support their local business community.”

HOW WILL IT WORK?

Downtown Rochester businesses dealing with customers face-to-face will get a set of pre-paid 3-hour parking vouchers they can give paying customers to use in any of the six city ramps downtown (so make sure it's not a private ramp, like the one attached to the Kahler)The program ends October 31st.

Here's the ramps included in the program.

Not ALL businesses are taking part in the free ramp parking...but many are, so click HERE to see if your favorite shopping spots will get you three hours free parking. 

PS - Ramp parking is always free after 5PM and on weekends.
