    Parking lots

    SmartParkLogoThe city owns six downtown SmartPark garages with nearly 4,000 public spaces. Each lot displays the number of available spots above the entrance in real time. More than 200 retail businesses will provide a validation voucher for Smart Park parking with qualifying purchases.

    Additional privately owned parking lots with varying daily, hourly, evening and weekend rates can be found throughout the central city.

    On-street parking

    In Portland’s central city, there are 9,700 metered parking spaces and two types of parking meters: the SmartMeter pay station and the single-space (coin-operated) meter.

    A SmartMeter is a solar-powered, multi-space parking meter that replaces a block of single-space meters. SmartMeters accept nickels, dimes, quarters, small dollar coins, prepaid cards and credit/debit cards. If a SmartMeter is broken you must still provide proof of payment, so purchase a receipt from the nearest functioning machine and post it inside your car’s curbside window.
