On weekends, parking at many locations is free, including some parking garages. However, there are important exceptions that are well-identified as reserved parking spaces 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Below is payment information for those who use the Grant Street parking garage. Be aware that the garage also has parking spaces that are reserved for other vehicles at all times.
