MPA offers free hour of parking during holidays
Miami Parking Authority (MPA) has brought back one our favorite things for this time of year, with the return of its popular “Holiday Parking Courtesy
Citation Program” to help customers avoid parking tickets.
Created over a decade ago, the program will
be in effect every day, 24 hours a day, from December 17, 2015 through January 1,
2016. It applies to all on-street parking spaces managed by MPA. All customers
who purchase parking at a single-space meter, a Pay & Display master meter,
or via PayByPhone, will be eligible. Once their parking has expired, they will
receive a special Holiday Courtesy Citation explaining that they have been
granted up to one free hour of parking beyond their expiration time.
“In the spirit of the holidays, the one-hour
courtesy citation program is an opportunity for us to thank our customers and
give back to our community,” said Arthur Noriega, CEO of MPA. “It allows customers

Additionally, customers who use PayByPhone to
park in the City of Miami no longer incur a .35 fee for the use of the
service. Last year,, MPA became the only parking agency in Florida to absorb
the mobile payment technology’s convenience fee. Residents of the City of Miami
also receive a 20% discount when using PayByPhone.
As a self-sustaining entity, MPA manages and develops on- and off-street
parking facilities in the City of Miami. Overseen by parking industry
professionals and financed by parking revenues, the agency shares
responsibility with the City of Miami Police Department and Miami-Dade County
for enforcement of parking regulations.
