2. Plan to Arrive Early

If you plan on visiting hot spots like Millennium Park or the Magnificent Mile, be sure to arrive as early as possible. With the mass amount of drivers, many who are unfamiliar with driving in the city, there are sure to be traffic jams closer to the event starting.

Try your best to reserve a space an hour or so before you normally would just to be on the safe side!

3. Extend Your Reservation

Realize that you need to stay a little bit longer? That’s no problem at all! With every iParkit reservation, you have the option to edit and extend your reservation.

  • In the main menu tap on “RECEIPTS”
  • Tap on the reservation you would like to edit
  • Scroll down to “EDIT RESERVATION”
  • Change the end time on your reservation
  • Make your changes to the time and or date
  • Your new rate will display before you proceed to extend your reservation, so you’re well aware of what the additional charge will be.
  • Tap “CONFIRM CHANGE”
  • This will update your current reservation to reflect the new end time.

If your reservation hasn’t started yet, you can still extend it ahead of time. If you do so, a new reservation and barcode will be created.
