     Prepayment

Time Limits

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.

ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Accessible Meters

Phoenix has several on-street accessible parking spaces throughout the downtown area.  Each space is clearly marked with a special sign with the international symbol of access.

Vehicles displaying a valid ADA License Plate and/or Placard receive one hour of free parking once their parking meter has expired.  Vehicles displaying a valid Purple Heart Recipient license plate also receive one free additional hour.  This applies to all parking meters, not just the designated ADA Accessible parking meters.

Your feedback on the city's parking meters is important. For questions or comments on how we can improve, call 602-495-6769 or email parking.meters@phoenix.gov
