If you’re getting around Cincinnati by car, the good news is that parking there is cheap and abundant. Parking rates generally differ by neighborhood:

  • On-street parking in the Central Business District and Over-the-Rhine is enforced from 9am to 9pm Monday through Saturday and 2pm to 9pm Sunday. The first 10 minutes of parking are free.

  • In other neighborhoods meters are enforced from 8am to 6pm Monday through Saturday. Parking is free Sundays and on holidays.

Rates are $2 an hour in the Central Business District, $1 an hour in Over-the-Rhine and 50 cents an hour in other neighborhoods. On-street parking rates differ depending on the location, so check our Cincinnati map and look out for color coded lines. Parking meters accept coins and Credit/Debit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Amex). By summer many on-street locations will allow payment by mobile.

There are over 170 lots and garages in Cincinnati. The average price for an hour of parking is $4.00 and $13 for 24 hours. Many of them offer long term parking; the average monthly permit price is $120.
