The City of Worcester transitioned from single space to multi-space, pay-by-plate meters city-wide. Starting in the Canal District, the City eliminated the single space parking meters in favor of the new smart kiosks. The upgrade is a part of the City's plan to enhance parking accommodation for residents, employees, small business patrons and attendees of large scale events.

Parking meters are enforced from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday - Saturday. Parking on Sundays and holidays are free of charge. In the Canal District, enforcement is in effect until 9:00 p.m. and two hour time limits will be enforced on Sundays.

On-Street Pay Station

Pay stations are located in your parking area. The on-street kiosks/meters nearby offer an easy to use touch screen interface to get you paid and on your way. Simply enter your license plate number into the machine, which ticketing enforcement uses to confirm paid parking sessions. This means there are no receipts on the dashboard. Payment options include Coins, AMEX, Discover, MasterCard and Visa.

How it works Find Meters

You can also park and pay by phone using the new Passport Parking App when visiting downtown Worcester. Pay (a small flat service fee may apply), track, extend and manage your parking session all from your phone. Look for the unique zone number on Pay to Park or Parking App signs and decals nearby.
