Parking Options in Downtown Cumberland
Several changes have been implemented over the past few months in regards to parking in the downtown area. In terms of enforcement, all meters are in effect from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Parking at all meters and on all MPA lots is free after 5 p.m., as well as on Saturday and Sunday. Parking is also free in these areas on all holidays recognized by City Hall. The free parking does not apply to the George Street Parking Garage.
Automated Parking Kiosks
Several streets in the downtown area now have automated parking kiosks which must be utilized to pay for parking on these streets. These machines have taken the place of the old parking meters. The new machines will accept coin, as well as credit and debit cards. The patron must choose the amount of time in which they will be parked at the location and pay the required fee. The machine will then print out a receipt which you must display in a visible manner on the front dashboard of your vehicle.
These kiosks are located throughout the downtown area and on Washington Street. The kiosks are also found on the MPA lots located in the 100 block of Greene Street, N. Liberty Street.
There are signs placed around the downtown area directing you to the closest kiosk. More kiosks are planned for future installation at various locations in the downtown area.
