General Parking Information

Where & When to Park

Downtown Shreveport has approximately 8,961 parking spaces in surface lots and garages with free parking on the riverfront and in City surface parking lots.

It is important to remember that almost all of the private, off-street lots and garages charge 24/7. Assume that there is no free parking in these lots unless you have information stating otherwise.

All of the on-street spaces are FREE from 5 pm- 8 am Monday-Friday and all day Saturday and Sunday. ALL on-street spaces (even those with no meter) are pay spaces from 8 am- 5 pm Monday-Friday. If you are parking in a space with a physical meter, you may pay using the meter (coins or a ParkCard), by using the Parkmobile parking app, or you can pay by phone by calling 877-727-5988.

If you are parking in a space without a physical meter, you will need to use the Parkmobile Parking app or pay by phone by calling 877-727-5988.

Metered Parking is designed to encourage turn-over for easy access to downtown retailers and businesses. On-street parking is FREE on weekends and after 5 pm Monday through Friday.

Parking Lots and Garages: Surface parking and garage rates range from $20 – $100 for monthly parking and various rates for daily. NOTE! Parking at many of the lots, and all System Parking Lots is NEVER free.  Private parking lots can and do charge at night and on weekends. Please read all signage before parking in an off-street lot after-hours. Some private parking lots will TOW or ticket up to $100 for parking without paying.

Commercial Loading Zones: Per Section 90-299 of the Shreveport City Ordinance, use of commercial vehicle loading zones is limited to trucks, delivery vans or automobiles with commercial license plates. There is a 60 minute limit to commercial loading zone parking.
