Pay by Phone Parking

red and white sign indicating parkmobile zone

The District's Pay by Phone Program allows esidents, workers and visitors to use their mobile phones to pay for parking at all of the approximately 17,000 on-street metered spaces throughout the District of Columbia.

The program, administered by Parkmobile, provides another convenient payment option for drivers. Instead of paying with cash or a credit card, all it takes is a short phone call.

Motorists must first register for this service with the vendor through the web or by phone. Online, register at Parkmobile.

Please note: there is a small transaction fee ($0.32) added to the cost of parking for each Pay by Phone transaction.

Users can also download a mobile application to pay for parking from a smart phone.
