Free Public Parking and Street Permit Regulations for Telluride

Telluride is 4 blocks wide by 10  blocks long.  You can imagine that parking can be challenging.

Here’s all the info you need so that you know what to expect in advance.

Free all-day parking is available to commuters and visitors at the Carhenge parking lot on West Pacific Street.  The lot is serviced by the regular Galloping Goose – 970-728-5700 transit loop.

Metered zones and free two-hour parking are available throughout the business district. Meters are one per block. Users can purchase a receipt for up to three hours of parking at a rate of fifty cents per hour. Meter receipts should be placed carefully on the driver’s side dash board face up so that Code Enforcement officers can clearly read them.

Commuters are encouraged to use the regional transit system, car pool with friends and co-workers, or use the Carhenge parking lot if off street parking is not available at their place of employment.

All parking is enforced from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm MONDAY THRU SATURDAY. Sundays and holidays are excluded from parking enforcement.  Special parking issues will be enforced on those off days. (i.e. fire lane violations, blocking alleys and driveways)
