A lot has changed since the first parking meters were installed in Minneapolis in 1940. From single-space meters that only cost a nickel back then, to now multi-space meters and a mobile parking app, on-street parking looks much different today. The City of Minneapolis now operates approximately 8,000 metered spaces with varying rates, time limits, and hours of enforcement. These metered spaces are conveniently placed to maintain parking availability in high demand areas throughout the city. To make your parking experience even easier, the City of Minneapolis also offers the MPLS Parking app, allowing you to begin and extend parking sessions remotely.
