Parking fees coming back to downtown Lexington


After more than two months of no fees at the LEXPARK on-street meters, the Lexington Parking Authority will again be charging. However, the fees will be going to a good cause.

When will fees begin?

Where are the fees going?

LEXPARKBeginning on Monday, May 18 and running through Friday, May 29 (the last two weeks of May), all revenue collected by the meters will be donated to both God’s Pantry and the Bluegrass Community Foundation’s COVID-19 response fund. This revenue includes coins, cash, credit cards, and meters paid using the PayByPhone app.

“We are glad to help in some small way these wonderful organizations,” said James H. Frazier, III, LPA Board Chair. “LPA has always exhibited a social conscience, a fact we are proud to continue.”

The Parking Authority plans to keep its Curbside Pickup locations until further notice. These spaces are free to those picking up meals from downtown restaurants and it has proven helpful to these Lexington staples.

All other parking rules have been in place and enforced during COVID-19 and LEXPARK will continue to enforce those rules, overtime parking, and now the required meter payments.

For those who don’t feel comfortable touching meter surfaces, they recommend using the PayByPhone app which can be downloaded from the app store or by visiting here for more information.
