- Find parking spaces just for motorcycles and scooters
- Save money parking motorcycles and scooters at regular parking meters with Paybyphone
There are over 200 parking spaces, including over 100 metered spaces, that are only for motorcycles and scooters. These designated spaces are marked with:
- Green-topped meters
- Motorcycle parking signs
- White painted zones
Metered spaces for motorcycles and scooters
The parking rate for motorcycle meter spaces on a block is 50% less than regular parking meter spaces on the same block.
Electric scooters, both registered and unregistered, may park for free.
Find a metered space
You get a 50% discount on parking rates when you use Paybyphone to park your gas-powered motorcycle and scooter in regular parking meter spaces.
Electric scooters with licence plates can get a 75% discount.
Electric scooters without licence plates can't park in regular parking meter spaces.
You can share a parking space with other motorcycles or scooters if there's room. Make sure your bike fits within the painted lines of the space.
When you share a space, here's how to pay for parking:
- By Paybyphone – this covers your bike only
- By coin at the meter – this covers all the bikes in the parking space
If you're parked in a space with no time left on the parking meter or no current Paybyphone transaction, you can get a ticket.
