Cincinnati Offers Free Parking for Electric Vehicles

June 04, 2009

CINCINNATI – Cincinnati officials have revealed plans to offer free parking to drivers of all-electric vehicles, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

As part of the Green Cincinnati Initiative, the program allows electric vehicles displaying city-issued stickers to park free of charge next to city parking meters and in four downtown parking garages, the Enquirer reported.

City officials said an informal survey of residents found eight all-electric vehicles in the city. There may be a few unknown others tooling around town, as well, according to UPI.

Councilman David Crowley, who spearheaded the effort to adopt the program, said it sends an important message.

"It's all about the symbolism at this point," Crowley said, reported UPI.
