In the downtown core, Spokane's 800 modern parking meters accept Visa, Master Card, and most American coins, providing multiple payment options for new visitors and regular users. Outside the downtown core, customers will see 2,700 traditional coin-operated parking meters that have been in use for decades.

The City is currently rolling out a pay by phone option for all of the meters, whether modern or traditional. Rollout of the system should be complete in early April 2017. You can download the pay by phone app from Passport Parking on Google Play, the Apple app store, or by going to www.ppprk.com.

Main Avenue Pilot Area
