Parking meters and pay stations free on Monday

SEATTLE-The Seattle Department of Transportation reminds motorists that Monday, November 12, is a legal parking holiday. As printed on the parking meters and pay stations, Veteran’s Day, November 11, is a holiday. The Seattle Municipal Code states that when the designated holiday, as in this case Veteran’s Day November 11, falls on a Sunday, then the following Monday is the parking holiday. The pay stations will be shut down on Monday and will not accept payment; however, the old parking meters cannot be shut down and will continue to accept coins.

Please note: Although parking is free, peak-hour transit parking restrictions will still be in effect.

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $8 billion transportation infrastructure. To further Mayor Nickels’ goal to get Seattle moving, the department manages short- and long-term investments in streets, bridges, pavement and trees, that better connect the city with the region.
