Free Parking Ramp Hours Become Permanent

Downtown 3rd Street Parking Ramp

The Bismarck Parking Authority has made the recent program that allowed free parking during certain hours at the 3rd Street ramp permanent. The program, which opens up the 3rd Street ramp to free parking from 4:00pm-2:00am, was put into effect as a test back in April.

This news comes on the heels of news of further progression towards building another ramp, which will most definitely be much needed now that the free parking program has been made permanent and may, possibly, expand to the Parkade.

The idea for free parking during certain time periods or for certain individuals is one that I’ve supported for years, first mentioning it back in January 2010.
