Parking Meters

Days and Hours of Enforcement
All parking meters in the city of Phoenix are enforced daily between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m.

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-Phone is also available via the Pango Mobile Parking app for credit card enabled parking meters and Pay Stations.  With the Pango App, you can pay to park quickly and easily using your iPhone, Blackberry and Android throughout downtown Phoenix.

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.  Furthermore, any motor vehicle displaying the International Symbol of Access special plates or placard registered to the vehicle, is allowed to park one (1) additional hour at any parking meter, at no cost.  You must pay for parking in advance, then park for one (1) hour beyond the time that was paid for.
