Starting December 1st, the City of Amarillo started its free 30-minute parking on all on-street downtown metered parking.
The free parking will allow motorists to do quick errands, quick shopping, or to-go orders.
You’ll need to download the free ParkMobile App to be able to use the free parking, and the app can be loaded on a cellphone.
It works like this, drivers enter the parking zone number located on the green signs at the beginning and end of each block.
Select 30 minutes for the time interval. A popup will confirm no charge for the parking session. Click on the popup and then click the green proceed to payment button to start a parking session.
The app will send a warning when parking time is expiring and parking sessions can be extended if needed on the app
The rate for parking is a dollar an hour or for any portion of an hour
