Parking Pay Stations

Parking pay stations are located throughout the downtown area in Atlanta and manage the on-street parking spaces. ATLPlus uses these solar-powered pay-by-space parking pay stations throughout the City which requires the driver to input their parking space number to pay for their parking. Parking space numbers are labeled on the sidewalk curb. These pay stations accept coins, bills, and credit and debit cards. The minimum payment amount for credit card users is $2. When parking, please remember your parking space number, identify the nearest pay station, enter your parking space number and select your payment option according to the directions at the pay station. Receipts are optional and you do not have to display it on your dash. A good method to remember your parking space number is to take a picture from your smartphone once you park and walk to the nearest pay station.

What is a parking pay station?

Pay stations replace traditional single space parking meters and offer more payment options. One pay station is typically installed for approximately every 8-10 parking spaces instead of at every space and are strategically located throughout the city.

Single-space meters

Single-space parking meters for on-street parking are located throughout the City of Atlanta. These single-space meters will accept credit cards (Visa or MasterCard), debit cards or coins. The Parkmobile App can also be used at these locations.

Pay by smartphone – Parkmobile

With Parkmobile’s app, starting your parking transaction takes just a few seconds and there is no need to pay at a pay station or single space meter.

Parking meter issues & malfunctions

If a pay station malfunctions please find another pay station and pay for your parking or use the Parkmobile app. If a single–space meter malfunctions please call 404-201-5396. Be advised all time restrictions are still in affect even if a meter is malfunctioning.

Single-space parking meters accept quarters, dimes and nickels and credit cards (Visa and MasterCard).
