Parking Meters 

Parking Meters are located throughout the business districts in the Sun Link Streetcar corridor and range from 1/2-hour to 6-hour time limits.  Please note the time limit, which is indicated on both a nearby sign and the meter's LED display.

All meters are priced at $1.00/hour, and are enforced Monday - Friday 8:00am to 5:00pm.  Metered parking spaces are free after 5:00pm on weekdays and all weekend.

All meters in the 4th Avenue business district, University/Main Gate Square areas, and most in Downtown are "smart" meters that accept payments by credit, debit, or Park Smart card.   The Park Smart card is your own parking value card, loaded with a balance that is drawn down with each parking meter visit.   Park Tucson offers Park Smart cards at a discount of 25%.  Buy a Park Smart card loaded with $25 in parking value for just $20.

All Park Tucson parking meters can be paid with the GoTucson Parking mobile app.  Download this app for free at your smart phone's app store.
