That's right everyone, it looks like you'll be able to enjoy more of the Downtown New Bedford scene for longer without feeding the meter or moving your car.

The following picture portrays a parking meter in the Union and Purchase Street area in New Bedford. It appears that the amount of time that you can stay parked at these meters has increased in the Downtown area.

Some of the meters in the Downtown area used to be good for an hour, and some of them less than that. Now it looks like (at least these ones) the meters are good for two hours.

This is great news! Now we get to spend more time at the great Downtown New Bedford places like the Pour Farm!
