If the pay station where you parked is inoperative, please call 877‐242‐7901 and report it within 24 hours. In such cases, you don’t have to pay for parking. However, please be aware that you may park only for the maximum period of stay allowed in that zone. Exceeding the time limit, even if the meter is broken, may result in a citation. Please remember that by reporting a broken or malfunctioning pay station, you are helping us keep the system operational, helping your fellow motorists and protecting yourself should you inadvertently receive a parking ticket. You may also consider using ParkChicago©
), a Pay‐By‐Cell service for Chicago’s on‐street parking system.
