The city of Orlando’s Downtown Development Board began it's ParkDTO Program back in May, with visitors enjoying FREE parking at on-street metered and non-metered spaces, via the ParkMobile app.

Plus, complimentary valet was also made available via participating restaurants, while dining and shopping downtown thanks to the ParkDTO Program.

Developed as a strategic initiative of the Downtown Orlando Community Redevelopment Area Plan, the new initiative started on Monday, May 15, with the aim of offering greater access to downtown for visitors.

The scheme has proved so successful, that the Downtown Development Board want to extend the scheme into 2024, with a meeting on Dec. 6 considering providing another $100,000 for the ParkDTO program.

If the extension is not extended, the program will end Dec. 31.

The program gives up to 2 hours of FREE parking at any metered and non-metered parking spot in downtown by using the ParkMobile code: ParkDTO.

To spread the FREE parking love, you can use the code a maximum of four (4) times per account. Plus if you are dining downtown you will receive validation for valet at participating downtown restaurants between 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm.

Promotion codes are valid 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Any amount owed in excess of the validated time is the responsibility of the person parking.

Parking meters are free in downtown Orlando before 8 a.m. and after 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, as well as all day Sunday.

So far, approximately 6,500 ParkDTO codes have been used, with 2,500 codes used for valet service.

A list of participating restaurants and a map of the designated area for parking are now available.
