Parking Meter

Since 2004, hundreds of EZ Park Parking Meters have been installed throughout Baltimore City, replacing thousands of single space parking meters.  These kiosks can serve 5-10 vehicles and accept credit cards as well as coins, making it easier for parkers to pay for their parking and avoid a citation. But not every single space parking meter can be replaced with a multi-space EZ Park Meter.  Some blocks have just two or three meters or there isn't enough curb space to place an EZ Park Meter.  At these old single space meters, parkers still had to pay with coins.  Some meters  only accepted certain types of coins, which made it even harder to pay.

Early in 2014, hundreds of new single space parking meters that accept credit cards as well as coins replaced many of the old parking meters throughout Baltimore.  Now, drivers can park in these areas with the same ease and convenience they have grown to enjoy since the debut of EZ Park Meters in 2004.

We hope these new parking meters make it easier for you to enjoy Baltimore, reducing anxiety that a parking citation may be awaiting you on return to your vehicle because you didn't have the right amount of spare change in your wallet or car.

Problems with EZ Park Meters can be reported using our online form below or by calling (443)986-9430 for 24/7 customer service.

Problems with single space meters can be reported by calling (410)396-1881.

Handicap Parking Policy at EZ Park Meters

Project SPACE launched in Phase 1 of Baltimore City on July 10, 2014. People displaying a disability placard or license plate while parked at a meter within Phase 1 boundaries (Franklin Street to the North, President Street to the East, Pratt Street/Key Hwy to the South and Martin Luther King, Jr., Blvd. to the West) are required to pay parking meters that meet ADA guidelines. EZ Park Meters throughout this area have been upgraded to meet the most recent ADA requirements. Over 200 parking spaces are now reserved for people with disabilities. Reserved Handicap Parking Sign Meter payment is required at these spaces as well as EZ Park Meters. Parking Meter Meter duration limits in Phase 1 are at least 4 hours (or more). People with disabilities are required to following posted duration limits.
New areas will be added in phases in the future. Please go to to learn more about Project SPACE.
If your disability tag/plate is displayed and you are parking outside of the Phase 1 boundaries, you are entitled to park at an on-street parking meter for double the meter duration limit (not to exceed four hours) without payment.
Example: if the parking meter’s duration limit is one hour, you may park for two hours; if the meter duration limit is two hours, you may park for four hours; if the meter duration limit is four hours, you may only park for four hours.
