The new parking system has been in place since September of 2021. Information has been shared on the City’s social media pages, the City of Royal Oak’s website, in weekly emails, in Royal Oak’s Insight magazine, which is sent to every household in Royal Oak, and with local media.
The on-street pay stations have information on how to use the new system, including what the maximum parking limit is, how to identify your space, parking rates, and how to pay.
Additionally, the City of Royal Oak has parking ambassadors on the street helping motorists navigate the new system. Brochures and information about the new system are being distributed by the ambassadors and can also be found at City Hall and the Royal Oak Police Department.
We are constantly evaluating the system -- trying to make it more intuitive and easier to use. Your feedback in this regard is very important to us as we work to make the system as user-friendly as possible.
