THE CITY OF TAMPA IMPLEMENTING PARKING CHANGES IN YBOR CITY

Starting on March 14, the City of Tampa is instituting a series of parking changes that will make it easier to find a parking space, reduce traffic congestion and create additional parking spaces in the business corridor of Ybor City.

City of Tampa Parking Division crews will also be creating an additional 100 new parking spaces in the Ybor Business District by adding new pavement markings. 

Currently, street parking is free up to two hours along 7th Avenue, 8th Avenue and 9th Avenue in Ybor City. Starting on Tuesday, March 1, pay station kiosks will begin being installed along those streets. Installation of the kiosks will take approximately two weeks.

Additionally, the City of Tampa will be making free parking (up to two hours) available in three city-owned parking lots (Ybor Lots 3, 5, & 6) in the Ybor business district. After two hours, those parking in surface lots will pay $1.00 per hour.

Drivers will now find paid parking spaces from Nuccio Parkway (West) to 22nd Street (East) and Palm Avenue (North) to Adamo Drive (South). 

HOW TO PAY:

  • Parking Pay Station Kiosks (or)
  • Parkmobile App (available on Android and Apple devices)
  • Drivers will input their license plate number into the pay station or utilize the mobile app.
