CHICAGO -- Street parking is free in much of Chicago starting this weekend.

The new reality is part of an agreement between the city of Chicago and Chicago Parking Meters. It was approved by the Chicago City Council on June 5.

The "Sunday free zone" includes city neighborhoods and streets surrounding the downtown business district.

The agreement between the meter company and the city will also allow motorists to pay for street parking using smart phones beginning in May 2014.

The company says the new technology will offer a number of time-saving conveniences.
