After receiving a parking ticket in Downtown West Chester the other day, I thought it would be a good time to clear up confusion and remind visitors about parking. First and foremost, I would advise you, if you haven’t already, to watch Malena’s Where to Park in West Chester video. Also, on-street parking meters have been changed to allow customers to park up to three hours. At the same time, there are new hours of enforcement posted on affected meters:
- 8am to 10pm, Monday thru Friday.
- FREE on Saturday until 5pm. Saturday evening enforcement from 5pm to 10pm.
- FREE on Sunday except during major events which have a $5 flat fee.
