A popular hub for visitors to Acadia National Park is going to start charging for parking

BAR HARBOR, Maine — A popular hub for visitors to Acadia National Park is going to start charging for parking.

Bar Harbor, Maine, has set time limits on parking in much of the downtown village for many years, but it plans to begin charging to park next month.

The Bangor Daily News reports that the new summer parking rules will eliminate all-day free, parking on downtown side streets.

The town will make seasonal parking permits available to local residents, property owners, employees and others. The rest will pay at sidewalk meters or parking lot kiosks.

The move comes amid ever-increasing seasonal traffic to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, which set a visitation record in 2018.
