PAYMENT AND COST

CITY GARAGES

Q. How much does it cost to park in a City garage?

A. Garage parking rates are $1 for the first 2 hours and then $1 for each additional hour. The maximum daily rate is $10.00. You can pay by cash, credit card, and coins (dollar coin and quarter). The garage does not accept denominations higher than $20.  For your convenience, you may pay at the ticketing kiosks located at the garage entries/exits – without even needing to leave your car. In the near future, the ParkMobile App will also be a payment option for individuals parking in City garages. Garage parking is always free on Sundays.
 


SURFACE LOT SPACES

Q. How do I pay for surface lot spaces?

A. The surface lots use a “pay and display” parking meter system – similar to systems you see at the beach - where a singular pay station functions as an automated, multi-space parking meter. Time receipts are dispensed to be displayed on the dashboard of the vehicle for enforcement purposes. For convenience, payment options include credit cards, bills and coins. Receipts are valid only in the lot purchased. Motorcyclists must also pay and display. To help avoid theft of the receipt, the license tag number should be written on the receipt. In addition, the stub of the receipt should be torn off and kept with the driver.
 

Q. How do I pay by credit card at a “pay and display” meter:

A. The “pay and display” meters accept: Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. To pay by credit card:
  • Insert card and remove quickly.
  • Select a value button to add time in hourly increments or select the “Daily Max” button (where applicable). If selecting the “Daily Max” button, the meter will calculate the time through the end of the day but will not exceed the posted daily maximum.
  • Once you reach the desired time, press the green button to print your receipt.
  • Take your receipt and display it face-up on the dashboard of your car. Keep the tear-off stub for your records.
  • No activity for 60 seconds and/or pressing the cancel button prior to printing your receipt will cancel the transaction and your credit card will not be charged.
 
Q. How do I pay with cash (bills of $10, $5, $1) or coins (dollar coin, quarter, dime, and nickel) at a “pay and display” meter?

A. To pay by cash at a “pay and display” meter:
  • Insert coins or bills until you reach the desired time.

**NOTE: The meter will only accept payment up to the posted daily maximum.**
  • Once you reach the desired time, press the green button to print your receipt.
  • Take your receipt and display it face-up on the dashboard of your car. Keep the tear-off stub for your records.
  • When paying by coins, no activity for 60 seconds and/or pressing the cancel button prior to printing your receipt will cancel the transaction and your coins will be returned.
  • When paying by bills, if no activity for 60 seconds, a receipt will be issued for the amount of time displayed on the meter. Bills are unable to be returned.
  • Pressing the cancel button will result in a “refund receipt.” Follow the instructions printed on this receipt to receive your refund.
 

METERED SPACES

Q. How much are metered spaces (including on-street and surface lot spaces)?

A. Meter rates vary from $0.25 for 30 minutes to $0.25 for 15 minutes, depending on location. Hours of operation for meters located in CityPlace are Monday – Saturday, 7 a.m. – midnight. All other downtown meter hours are Monday – Saturday, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. Metered spaces are free on Sunday.
 
Q. How do I pay for on-street, metered parking?

A. Most parking meters around the City accept quarters, dollar coins and credit cards. In addition, many meters allow you to pay by phone, using the ParkMobile App or by calling (877) 727-5714. To start your parking session, look for the green ParkMobile sign to determine your zone number.
 
Q. How does the ParkMobile App work?

A. The ParkMobile App is a convenient way to pay for and find available parking. To get started, follow these simple steps:
• Download the app and create your account.
  • **NOTE: you will need a valid email address and to provide your vehicle’s license plate number and state**
• Set up your payment method, which is stored in the app for future use.
• When you park at a ParkMobile location, enter the zone number for your spot. It will be located on the stickers and signs that you will see around the parking meters.
• Next, select the amount of time you’d like to park in that spot.
• Finally, confirm your information and click the “start parking” button.
• In the app, you will see a countdown clock that shows how much time is remaining in your parking session. You even have the option to extend your parking session through the app without needing to return to your vehicle.
 

TIP: Be careful to ensure you select the correct vehicle, with the correct tag number, as the ParkMobile App can store several accounts and vehicles within its platform simultaneously. If you select the wrong vehicle, parking enforcement will not recognize that you paid, as they cross check license plates on the street with those that paid in the back-end system before issuing a ticket. 
 
TIP: The State of Florida does not use the letter “o” in its automobile tags, only zeros - “0.” If you have a circular shape in your Florida state tag, it is a zero; be sure to enter zero, not “o,” as entering your tag number accurately helps to ensure you do not wrongfully receive a ticket.

Q. Where can I get a receipt for my metered parking space?

A. Receipts for any of our credit card enabled meters can be found online by visiting MyParkingReceipt.com, and entering your credit card information to review your transaction history.
 
Q. Why is there a time limit on my meter?

A. Meter times range from 15 minutes to all day, depending on where the meter is located. Time limits are established to create parking turnover in high-traffic areas. Each meter is clearly labeled with the maximum allowable time.
