Parking Tips

1. To use the 15 Minute FREE option when parking on-street downtown
At the meter enter license plate number then:
• choose #1 Purchase Ticket
• Choose #1 15 minute FREE
• A receipt will print

The 3 hour FREE option during the off season works the same way.

2. Use a cell phone camera to take a photo of a license plate for reference. If you have a typo on the receipt just place it on your dash to avoid a ticket.

3.  Add time to parking on the street at any on-street parking “meter” kiosks in town, not only the one parked closest to.

4. Pay or extend your time in the off-street lots at the meter in the lot you parked in ONLY. Lot rates are lower with a maximum of $5 for all day.

5. Paid parking hours in the Downtown for summer, and all of Ruxton year round, are 7:00am to 8:00pm.

6. If a kiosk does not print a receipt , it may be out of paper. Call (719) 685-2571 to request a refill, or walk away knowing your license plate was recorded as “paid” if the screen showed the expiration time.

7. Parking on Ruxton is signed with detailed instructions. Please read all signs close to where parked.
