Q: When are time limits enforced?

Q: I want to move my vehicle to another spot before time expires to avoid a ticket. How far do I have to move it?

A: Vehicles parked in a space with a time limit are only allowed on that block face for the posted limited time during that business day. This applies any day except Saturdays, Sundays, or public holidays unless otherwise indicated by the city traffic engineer.

For example, if you park your vehicle in a spot with a two-hour time limit at 8:00 a.m. on a Tuesday, you can remain in that spot for free until 10:00 a.m. When time expires, you must move your vehicle to a new block face and cannot park within that same block face again until the next business day (Wednesday).

Note: "Block face" is defined as one side of a specific city block where signed time-limited parking is available.

A: Time limits are not enforced in handicapped parking spaces.

Q: Why do City block faces have time limits?

A. City streets are primarily for short-term use by City residents and business patrons. As with many municipalities, the City of Cheyenne’s goals for downtown parking involve driving economic development by bringing customers downtown, creating parking turnovers, and voluntary compliance with city parking ordinances.

Q: Is there a service charge to pay online?

A: There is a service charge (fee) billed on all credit card payments. The amount is listed on the payment screen.


Q: Do I need a permit if I have jury duty?

A: Jurors can park in the two city garages for free for as long as they serve on the jury and the court will provide the jurors with parking permits.


Q: Why does the City tow cars?

A: Public parking is for use by everyone. It is not intended for use by people who are storing vehicles. City ordinances provide a process by which public agencies can remove vehicles that are parked in violation of parking restrictions.


Q: Who may be immobilized?

A: When a driver accumulates three unpaid parking tickets, they are added to a Scofflaw List. The driver is then sent a notice and has 15 calendar days to become compliant.

Q: How are vehicles immobilized?

A: Vehicles can be immobilized with a Barnacle parking device or boot.
