​    Types of Meters

Single-space Credit Card Meters - these easy-to-use meters make up the majority of the metered spaces and are concentrated in the downtown core area.  There are also credit card logos posted on the meters.





Paystations - these downtown meters are also easy to use and make up about 7 percent of the meter inventory.  They are used to serve an entire block of parking spaces and will accept coins or credit/debit cards. Your payment will correspond with your parking space number.   


Single-space Digital (Coin) Meters - these meters are being replaced with credit-card meters and will make up a smaller percentage of all meters in Phoenix.  They only accept coins (nickels, dimes and quarters) for payment.
