Royal Oak is introducing a pilot program for 30-minute parking spaces in the downtown area to allow for convenient short-term parking. The program includes five designated parking spaces with 30-minute meters along Main Street between 11 Mile Road and Fourth Street.
The new spaces address the need for quick visits to downtown businesses as well as the surge in services like Grubhub, DoorDash Food Delivery, Uber and Lyft.
These spaces will run as a pilot program through May 2019 and will be removed or made permanent based on input from the public.
The 30-minute meters have designated signage and take coins or credit card payment via ParkMobile. The cost is 50 cents for 30 minutes.
