HOW TO PAY FOR PARKING
Parking Pay Stations
Atlanta’s new pay stations make paying for on-street parking convenient. They’re easy to use and provide you with several payment options. ATLPlus uses these solar-powered pay-by-plate parking pay stations throughout the City which requires the driver to input their license plate number to pay for their parking. A good method to remember your plate number is to take a picture from your smartphone once you park and walk to the nearest pay station.
Depending on the location pay stations either accept coins, bills, and credit and debit cards or coins and credit and debit cards only. The minimum payment amount for credit card users is $2. When parking, please remember your plate number, identify the nearest pay station, and follow the onscreen directions to enter you plate number and select your payment option. Receipts are optional and you do not have to display it on your dash. Parking time limits still apply.
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 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
You can park in any parking metered space by using the Parkmobile app with your smartphone. 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. You can easily extend your time using Parkmobile as long as you do not over stay the time limits.
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.
Payment methods and parking rates
Single-space parking meters accept quarters, dimes and nickels and credit cards (Visa and MasterCard). While all pay stations will accept the coins and credit cards (Visa and MasterCard), some will still accept dollar bills. The minimum transaction amount for a credit card is $2.00. The hourly parking rate is $2.00 throughout the City.
