Meters cost $1.50 per hour and coin-only meters cost $1 per hour. Most meters accept credit/debit cards and coins and others only accept coins.
You can prepay at single-space credit card meters and pay stations for the time you need even if you arrive before the start of enforcement – you will not be charged until the meter begins operation at 8 am. Prepayment begins at 7:00 am at all credit card meters including pay stations every day. This feature does not apply to coin-only operated meters. Pay by cell is also available via the
Pango Mobile Parking App for credit card enabled meters.
Time limits generally vary by location. Time limits at metered locations can range from 15 minutes to as long as 8 hours. In most areas, the maximum duration is 2 hours; however, some areas may have longer maximum durations during the evenings and weekends. The parking time limits are posted on each meter.
