Parking Services

Parking Services maintains around 1,300 on-street parking meters, as well as non-metered parking regulations. 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.

All parking meters now offer the ability to pay using the Parkmobile app. The app stores your vehicle information for subsequent trips downtown. Parkmobile reminds you when your time is about to expire and offers the ability to extend your parking session remotely (up to the maximum allowable parking time for the meter). The time will not be displayed on the physical parking meter, but enforcement officers are notified of active parking sessions.
