Our metered on-street parking program ensures you have convenient and accessible parking for business, entertainment, and shopping in downtown Durham. We have approximately 1,000 on-street parking spaces that can be paid for using our single-space parking meters, multi-space parking pay stations, or pay-by-phone app. The parking regulation signs governing metered parking spaces indicate the time limit and the hours during which the meter must be paid. Be sure to read the signs carefully. Paid parking is in effect from 8:00 am to 7:00pm, Monday through Friday. Rates and hours are adjusted annually and vary based on local conditions. Mobile payment is available in all paid parking areas. Download the PassportParking app at your app store and set up an account for fast and convenient parking payment.
