Parking Authority of Baltimore City

Regarding the City of Baltimore's Ransomware Attack

The Parking Authority of Baltimore City, as a quasi-governmental agency, runs our information technology (IT) systems on separate servers from that of Baltimore City. As a result, our systems are unaffected by the current issues faced by many Baltimore City public agencies.

You can still:

  • Email us at our email addresses
  • Call us at any of our telephone numbers (voicemail is working as well)
  • Purchase and/or renew your residential parking permits online and in person
  • Pay parking meters
  • Pay for parking at City-owned garages
  • Pay for monthly parking online

Our regular office hours are Monday-Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.
Twice a month, we offer extended hours for residential parking permit holders:
