Welcome to the City of Boise!
Parking Services maintains around 1,300 on-street parking meters. All parking meters accept coins, and most accept credit cards. All parking meters now offer the ability to pay using the Parkmobile application.
This is a useful application that stores your vehicle information for subsequent trips downtown. The app will also remind 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. For more information, click here.
Online Payments for Parking Citations
The City of Boise does not charge a convenience for online payments on parking citations. We also provide a QR code on most parking citations for easier mobile lookup with a barcode scanning application. To pay for parking citations online or submit a citation appeal, click here.
Parking Services may be contacted by calling 208-972-8150 or via email.
Meter Payment Methods
Parking meters throughout downtown now offer more convenient parking payment options, including payment by credit/debit card, payment with Downtown Boise Association Gift Cards and payment through Parkmobile.
