    Traditional Parking Meters

    Coins - Pay for your stay at the meter with coins. We accept dollar coins, quarters, dimes and nickels. 

    Credit Card - Pay with a credit card via the ParkMobile app, available in the Google Play Store for Android and the App Store for iPhones.


    Pay Stations
    You can use all the same methods to pay as with our traditional parking meters. Pay stations also accept bills and credit cards at the machine. When using a credit card at a pay station, you will pay for a full hour of parking. If you are parking for a shorter time, try paying in cash or using ParkMobile. Visit our Pay Station Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.

    ​​1. Download the ParkMobile App
    ParkMobile is available in the Google Play Store for Android and the App Store for iPhones. Or call the Park​Mobile at 1-800-280-4146

    2. Set Up your Account 
    Have the license plate number of the parked vehicle and a credit card handy.

    You can set it up to receive a notification 15 minutes before your parking session is set to expire

    4. Locating the Zone Number

    5. Enter the Zone Number 
    Enter the zone number in the ParkMobile app and start your session.

    6. End your Parking Session
    Open the ParkMobile and end your parking session. The app is smart and knows when meters are enforced. Your parking session will end when meters are no longer being enforced 

    Ensure that you are following parking correctly on streets. Pay close attention to:

    ​• the days and hours of enforcement

    • meter rates

    • rules and regulations 

    • posted signs that restrict parking


    Keep track of the time you have, set an alarm to remind yourself when you have to leave.
