New parking pay stations installed
MARQUETTE — The new pay stations in downtown Marquette have been installed and payment for parking will be required starting Wednesday, the Marquette Downtown Development Authority announced.
MDDA said ample signage is being placed in parking lots and on blocks in the downtown to remind visitors where payment will be required for parking at a nearby pay station. Parking payments are enforced from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday at a rate of $1 per hour. Payment can be made at the nearest pay station to a vehicle with coin or credit card, or via Passport Parking app.
Visitors will want to make sure they have their license plate numbers available as it will be used to identify their vehicle as paid, MDDA said. An option for 15 minutes of free parking has been added for those who need to quickly run a brief errand downtown.
Options for long-term parking passes and overnight parking passes are still available and can be purchased at downtownmarquette.org/parking.
