Portland hosts many parking facilities (click here for a map) as well as metered parking throughout Downtown. Meters are free on Sundays.
The City of Portland has begun installation of new parking pay stations along Commercial Street, Fore Street, Federal Street and Free Street, as well as near Maine Medical Center in the West End. This program will replace the city’s coin-operated meters throughout the city over time.
The new solar-powered pay stations improve ease and accessibility of parking within the city. These pay stations accept coin, debit and credit cards and allow more vehicles to park along the street. The new stations also create neater, cleaner streetscapes, which improves sidewalk snow removal during the winter.
