The original question: Are parking meters in the city free during the lockdown?

The short answer: No.

Parking meters in the City of Houston are still operating under the same regulations, according to a representative from the city’s 311 Service Center.

The representative said it is important for drivers to follow the signages for meter enforcement times.

Parking meters are free after 6 p.m. from Monday through Saturday, free all day Sunday and are not enforced during official city holidays.

Drivers can pay for metered parking with coins, bills, credit or debit cards.
