Parking Meters

In downtown Eugene, parking meters are available for the purpose of allowing short term parking for visitors. The parking meters in downtown Eugene operate from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the week and on Saturdays. The benefit of parking meters is that it provides a time limit to avoid visitors from parking their cars along the curb all day or night. That way it allows other people to have a chance to park their cars in front or near a store, shop, or restaurant in the downtown area. The images below were taken of cars parked on the side of the road at parking meters on East Broadway and Pearl Street. The problem that people face when trying to park their cars at parking meters is that they fill up quickly, but the time limit restricts people from leaving their cars parked too long on the street.
