Parking Meters


You don’t have to pay the parking meters on these days:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

Since 2004, hundreds of EZ Park Parking Meters have been installed throughout Baltimore City, replacing thousands of single space parking meters.

  EZ Park Meters serve an entire block

These kiosks can serve 5-10 vehicles and accept credit cards as well as coins, making it easier for parkers to pay for their parking and avoid a citation. But not every single space parking meter can be replaced with a multi-space EZ Park Meter.  Some blocks have just two or three meters or there isn't enough curb space to place an EZ Park Meter.  At these old single space meters, parkers still had to pay with coins.  Some meters only accepted certain types of coins, which made it even harder to pay.   

Early in 2014, hundreds of new single space parking meters that accept credit cards as well as coins replaced many of the old parking meters throughout Baltimore.  Now, drivers can park in these areas with the same ease and convenience they have grown to enjoy since the debut of EZ Park Meters in 2004. 

Problems with EZ Park Meters can be reported using our online form below or by calling (443) 986-9430 for 24/7 customParkinger service. 

Problems with single space meters can be reported by calling (410) 396-1881.


Handicap Parking Policy/Project SPACE

Project SPACE launched in Phase 1 of Baltimore City on July 10, 2014. People displaying a disability placard or license plate while parked at a meter within Phase 1 boundaries (Franklin Street to the North, President Street to the East, Pratt Street/Key Hwy to the South and Martin Luther King, Jr., Blvd. to the West) are required to pay parking meters that meet ADA guidelines. EZ Park Meters throughout this area have been upgraded to meet the most recent ADA requirements. Over 200 parking spaces are now reserved for people with disabilities. Reserved ParkingMeter payment is required at these spaces as well as EZ Park Meters.Parking 

Phase 2 of ProjectSPACE went into effect September 27, 2016. Phase 2 boundaries are Eastern Avenue to the North, Wolfe Street to the East, Thames Street to the South, and President Street to the West.

Phase 3 of ProjectSPACE went into effect April 17, 2017. Phase 3 is bordered by:
North - E. Montgomery Street
East - Light Street
South - Ostend Street
West - Sharp Street

Meter duration limits in Phases 1, 2 and 3 are at least 4 hours (or more). People with disabilities are required to following posted duration limits.

Additional areas will be added in phases in the future. Please click here to learn more about Project SPACE.

If your disability tag/plate is displayed and you are parking outside of the Phase 1, 2 and 3 boundaries, you are entitled to park at an on-street parking meter for double the meter duration limit (not to exceed four hours) without payment.
Example: if the parking meter’s duration limit is one hour, you may park for two hours; if the meter duration limit is two hours, you may park for four hours; if the meter duration limit is four hours, you may only park for four hours.

Pay by License Plate Parking Meters
Pay by license plate multi-space parking meter

We're testing out parking meters that don't require you to return to your car. No paper receipts to display on your dash as proof of payment with these new parking meters that use your license plate number to verify payment. Just park, pay and go. Make sure you know your license plate number before you pay at the meter. Jot it down or snap a picture with your phone.
