Holiday shopping is stressful enough. Now Old Town Fort Collins patrons can experience a little more holiday cheer on their next trip downtown: free parking on Saturdays.
The city of Fort Collins has announced that parking in downtown garages will be free on Saturdays through New Year’s Day. This is in addition to free parking at the facilities on Sundays and city holidays throughout the year.
Participating parking garages include the Old Town parking garage, 100 Remington St.; Firehouse Alley garage, 160 Chestnut St.; and the Civic Center garage at the southeast corner of Mason Street and Laporte Avenue.
This year, Fort Collins changed the way people pay to park in downtown garages. Drivers now have to prepay to park rather than take a ticket upon leaving. The first hour at the Old Town garage and the Civic Center garage is always free.
Users can either enter their vehicle’s license plate number and payment (cash or credit card) at a pay station or use the city’s FC Parking app on a mobile phone.
Also new at the garages are signs that indicate how many parking spots are available on each level of the structure. Drivers can spot open spaces at a distance by using the light system above each stall. Green lights indicate a free space.
