ParkMe Real-Time Meter Parking Rates in Westwood Village

Real-time on-street parking information is now available in Westwood through ParkMe, the leading provider of real-time parking data. In collaboration with Xerox & LA Express Park, ParkMe has expanded smart parking coverage to this part of Los Angeles to save drivers time and money while eliminating stress as they navigate the crowded streets of Westwood.

This expansion into Westwood extends coverage of the Los Angeles Department of Transportation’s LA Express Park program which was previously only available in Downtown LA, Venice, and Hollywood. Using Xerox’s MERGE® platform, ParkMe helps travelers be more efficient with their driving and parking habits which can reduce up to 30 percent of urban traffic congestion.

Parking information can be accessed through the LA Express Park website, ParkMe’s smartphone apps and at

LA Express Park


Beginning in November, Westwood parking meters will not accept payment for any time beyond the posted time limit.

New Smart System Saves You Time & Frustration
  • Increases parking availability and reduces driver frustration
  • Better utilizes the underused garage parking

No More Meter Feeding
  • Time limits in Westwood Village vary by location and can be 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours. Time limits are indicated on overhead signs and on the display screen of each meter.
  • Once you have paid and been parked in a space for the designated time limit (e.g. 15 minutes), the meter will not allow you to purchase any more time.
  • DO NOT insert coins or try to use a credit or debit card once your vehicle has been parked for the posted time limit because the meter will NOT allow you to purchase more time.
  • Violators risk receiving a citation.
  • Drivers who need to stay in Westwood for long periods are encouraged to park in one of the many off-street parking lots and garages in the area.
If you have questions about this change, please email LADOT at

Support the Broxton Ave Plaza

The Westwood Village Improvement Association is working with the City of Los Angeles to create a public plaza on Broxton Ave. 
What is a Plaza?
  • The Plaza is a public open space that is closed to vehicular traffic. A colorful, patterned treatment is applied to the street, while large planters and other elements like tables and chairs define the plaza area.

Where Would The Broxton Ave Plaza go
  • The Plaza would go on Broxton Ave, between Weyburn Ave and the east/west alley south of Le Conte Ave 
Why a Plaza? 
  • Converts redundant street space into a people place for events, outdoor dining, and activities
  • Supports and enlivens local business by creating a walkable pedestrian destination
  • Produce a high-quality streetscape experience and improve the day-to-day life of the street 
  • How Do I Support The Broxton Ave Plaza?

Westwood Village Opens California’s First Cigarette Butt Recycling Program

Cigarette butts beware — cigarette waste recycling is finally coming to California! TerraCycle and Los Angeles’s Westwood Village have teamed up to bring the very first cigarette butt recycling program to the state of California. By partnering with TerraCycle, the Westwood Village Improvement Association will be installing 15 cigarette butt receptacles across various highly trafficked sidewalks throughout the area, allowing smokers to responsibly and safely dispose of their cigarette butts. With an estimated 3.5 trillion of these butts littered across the world every year, Westwood Village’s commitment to keeping this toxic and ubiquitous waste stream off the street and out of landfills is an exciting step forward for public health and the environment.

Any cigarette butts collected in Westwood Village will be sent to TerraCycle, where every component of the waste is processed. The plastic-fiber filter will be recycled into industrial products such as shipping pallets and railroad ties, while any paper or leftover tobacco is composted.

Are you over the age of 21 and interested in recycling cigarette butts in your community? Check out the Cigarette Waste Brigade and sign up for free today!
