Parking Information

On Monday, July 22, 2013, New Haven launches Parkmobile, a new service that allows you to pay your meter by cellphone. The Parkmobile app is available for Android, Blackberry, iPhone, and Windows Phone. All you need is a cellphone number, email address, license plate number, and credit card information.

Downtown New Haven has over 15,000 available parking spots throughout the city. There is metered parking on the street, numerous garages, and surface parking lots conveniently located throughout downtown, and in surrounding residential neighborhoods.


All parking meters are in effect until 9:00pm Monday through Saturday. After 5:00pm, there are no time limits associated with any meter. That means after 5:00pm, you can pay all the way up until 9:00PM. In the city center, our new meters also accept credit cards. Please check each meter for time and rate.
