Downtown Parking

Parked carsThe City of Greeley offers more than 2,000 free two-hour parking spots to all downtown visitors — and all downtown parking is free after 5 p.m. on weekdays, and all day on weekends and City holidays.

Parking is enforced from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. on weekdays in permit areas, traditional two-hour parking zones, and the Orange Zone using license plate recognition software.

Types of Parking Downtown

Free Two-Hour Parking with the Option to Pay to Stay

Areas signed as two-hour parking offer two free hours of parking. Once the first two hours have passed, visitors have the option to pay to stay using Passport or move their vehicle. Free two-hour parking is also offered in the Orange Zone, but with some restrictions (please see below for more information).

Free All Day Parking

Free all day parking is available in on-street areas that are not signed as two-hour parking. The Chamber of Commerce south lot (10th Street and 7th Avenue) and the Train Museum lot (10th Street and 6th Avenue) also offer free all day parking.

Permit Parking

Areas signed as permit parking are for use by permit holders. After 5 p.m. permit areas are free for public use with no time limitation. To find out more about permit parking visit the permit page

Pay to Stay with Passport

To stay longer than two hours, visitors can use Passport to pay for additional time. Each hour after the first two hours is $2 with a maximum of $10 per day. 

Staying Longer Than Two Hours?

If you plan to stay longer than two hours or are unsure of the length of your stay, you must begin a Passport session shortly after parking your car. Failure to do so will not preclude you from receiving a citation.

Parking in the Orange Zone

To increase available parking in high-use areas downtown, Greeley created Orange Zone Parking. To stay longer than two hours in the Orange Zone without paying to stay, visitors must move their vehicle at least two blocks from their original parking spot or leave the Orange Zone to restart their two-hour free parking timer. Visitors can pay to stay using Passport to avoid having to move their vehicle out of the Orange Zone. 

If you are parked in the orange zone you will see the following signage. The orange zone boundary is shown in the map below. After two hours you must move your vehicle two blocks, out of the orange zone, or pay for addition time.

Parking in the orange zone is free with no time limits after 5 p.m. and on weekends and holidays.
