City of Akron to Resume Standard Parking Enforcement with Flowbird App Beginning Monday April 3

Akron, Ohio, March 28, 2023 — On Monday, April 3 the City of Akron plans to resume standard parking enforcement in the downtown area. When you park downtown, you’ll notice new machines have been installed throughout.

Patrons are asked to download the Flowbird app from the app store or to visit to become familiar with the payment process prior to the enforcement date. The new parking meters accept credit card, coins, or payment through the application. Paper cash will not be accepted.

The parking enforcement will take place from Monday to Friday from 7 am to 6 pm. Weekends and holidays will continue to be free parking. Cost of parking will be $1/per hour with a 2 hour limit at most meters. Once your two hours is up, you can renew your time with the Flowbird application.

If you prefer to park in one of our many City parking decks or lots, please refer to this helpful list provided by Downtown Akron Partnership: Parking Decks & Lots.
