As downtown Grand Rapids continues to grow and add new events, finding parking especially cheap parking can sometimes be a hassle, especially when you just need a quick spot for an errand.  The ramps cost more than a meter per half hour and if you do find a meter, you then have to make sure you have change.

Downtown Grand Rapids Inc, is asking for your help to pick the right meter option for downtown.  Right now, City of Grand Rapids Parking is testing a few different “smart” meter system that take credit cards; which would make parking downtown SO much easier!

They have a few “test” parking meters set up for you to try and then give feedback on which one you like the best.

The “test” meters are located on Monroe Center and in the lot across from Van Andel, next to the Ottawa-Fulton Ramp.

Once you try the meters, you can then take a quick survey HERE and tell them which one you liked or why you didn’t like one of them.

Look at you, being an “influencer” for the city!
