While we continue to work together to stay safe and restart the economy, downtown Orlando is making it easier than ever to drive, park, and explore the tastes, sights, and experiences found only in downtown. For a limited time, you can enjoy FREE parking in metered street spaces and inside specific City of Orlando garages, while dining and shopping downtown thanks to the ParkDTO Program. Click here to learn more. 

In an effort to further support delivery and pick-up dining options during this time, the City of Orlando has temporarily provided a 30-minute grace period for all downtown on-street metered parking locations for customers and delivery drivers (like Uber Eats) picking up/delivering to-go orders.

For added convenience, select meters near dining establishments have been bagged and signed and are for use only by those picking up/delivering to-go orders.

Vehicles that are clearly marked for food delivery service or restaurant vehicles may park in any metered spaces (bagged or unbagged) and receive 30 minutes of unpaid parking.
