Parking Services

Due to a staff shortage, the City Clerk’s Office encourages residents to make an appointment for services such as finger printing and background checks. Walk-in services are available but extended wait times are expected. To make an appointment email or call 208-972-8150.


The Parking Services team maintains more than 1,000 on-street parking meters, as well as non-metered parking across the city.

All parking meters accept coins, and most accept credit cards and Downtown Boise Association gift cards. Non-metered zones, unless otherwise posted, are enforced at all times.

Meters also offer the ability to pay using the Parkmobile app. Parkmobile stores your vehicle information, notifies you when your parking time is about to expire and can even extend your parking session remotely up to the maximum time allowable for that spot.

The time will not be displayed on the physical parking meter, but enforcement officers are notified of active parking sessions based on your vehicle license.

GET PARKMOBILE APP

Beginning April 1, 2022 the fee for using the ParkMobile app will increase to $0.35 cents to cover processing fees for each transaction.
