Free, Half-Hour Parking Offered to Downtown East Lansing Visitors this July

EAST LANSING, Mich. — In a continued effort to support downtown East Lansing businesses during the ongoing construction projects, the City of East Lansing will be offering free, half-hour parking to downtown visitors in all gated garages and gated surface lots in the downtown throughout the month of July.

This summer parking incentive will provide downtown visitors parked for 30 minutes or less with free parking and downtown visitors parked for more than 30 minutes with discounted parking. The incentive will be offered at the following locations:

  • Grove Street Garage, 330 Grove St.
  • M.A.C. Garage, 310 M.A.C. Ave.
  • Charles Street Garage, 121 Charles St.
  • Division Street Garage, 181 Division St.
  • Bailey Lot, 139 Bailey St.

“Our hope is that this incentive will bring more people downtown to support their favorite businesses,” said East Lansing Parking Administrator Caleb Sharrow. “With the ongoing construction and the summer population decline that comes with being a college town, this is a time of year when downtown businesses can really use some extra support and patronage.”
