Paying for Street Parking

You can pay for on-street parking using:

  • Parking meters
  • The ParkNYC mobile app or web browser

When parking on the street and paying for parking, make sure to follow all of the posted parking regulations on the block. Parking limits and regulations appear on street signs. You can park at meters on Sundays without paying, but all other parking regulations remain in effect as posted.


Parking Meters

Parking meters control multiple parking spaces on streets and in municipal parking lots. All meters accept quarters, dollar coins, parking cards, and credit and debit cards for payment. Each meter has rate information and step-by-step instructions posted on its display card. Meters marked with a credit card logo will also accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover Network cards.
