Parking meters in the City of Concord are enforced from Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. This includes all on-street meters. Parking in the garages is free on Saturdays. On-street meter rates are $1.00 / hour. Parking meters are free after 7 p.m. and on holidays. On-street meters have 3 hour and 10 hour time limits. View the map below for more information. A good rule of thumb is: If the banks are closed for a holiday, you don’t have to feed the meter.

Yes, you can now pay for on-street, as well as City parking lots and garage locations with the PayByPhone app. It’s the easiest way to pay, and requires just your mobile phone. Download it from the Apple App Store or get it on Google Play.Why Park with PayByPhone?
*Please note that PyByPhone does charge a fee per transaction.
You must leave a parking space (1 and 2 hr meters) when the time limit posted on the meter has been reached. It is illegal to deposit additional coins in the meter after the time limit has been reached. Street meters are intended for short-term parking. The purpose of the time limit is to ensure that parking spaces regularly become available for customers of area businesses and visitors to the area. You may return and deposit coins to increase your stay at the 4 and 10-hour meters.
Don't assume it is a free parking space or you may get a ticket. The best thing to do is move to another meter space or if using a pay by space or pay and display kiosk, utilize another kiosk in the same area. Report the problem to the Parking Division at 603-225-8640.
If you can get to the meter, yes. This may mean going to the end of the block and walking back up the sidewalk.
You may park overnight unless a Parking Ban has been called. Pay special attention during the winter months as this is when the Parking Bans are frequently used. A vehicle is only permitted to be parked for a duration of 48 hrs on any public street before it must be moved.
After 10 days and again at 20 days, you will be charged a delinquent penalty. Should you accumulate five outstanding citations or an amount over one hundred dollars, your vehicle is subject to impoundment. You will have to pay by cash or cashiers check all outstanding fines, including a $100 impoundment fee, prior to your vehicle being released. If your vehicle is booted and you do not pay within 24hrs your vehicle will be towed. You will be responsible for all City charges and any towing company charges and storage fees.
We can only help you BEFORE your vehicle is impounded. After the vehicle is impounded we must collect all outstanding fines and fees before it can be released.
Currently the disabled permit/placard allows you to park without paying. Effective July 1, 2018, time limits will be enforced at all public Handicap Parking Spaces (on-street, as well as municipal parking garages and lots) per RSA 265:74 and City Code of Ordinances 18-1-16. You may never park in a designated disabled access aisle, even with a valid disabled plate or placard.

If you believe that your vehicle has been towed during a parking ban:You may contact the Police Department Parking Division during normal office hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. at 603-225-8640, or during times outside of the normal office hours at 603-225-8600 to make an inquiry.You will need to come to the Concord Police Department at 35 Green Street with photo identification to obtain a vehicle release form. The release form will provide the towing operator the authorization necessary to release your vehicle. We utilize a rotational list of towing contractors, so information on where to pick up your vehicle will be included with the release forms. You will be required to pay the tow company directly at the time of retrieving your vehicle.
Yes. To pay prior to 9 a.m., you need to add the number of hours you are parking prior to 9 a.m. to the total time you enter into the PyaByPhone parking app. For example, if you park your car at 7 a.m., and wish to remain parked until 11 a.m., you need to enter 4 hours into the app (7 – 9 a.m. = 2 hours + 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. = 2 hours for a total of 4 hours). The app will only charge you for the time you’re parked after 9 a.m. You can also pay prior to 9 a.m. at the kiosks.
The PayByPhone website contains some useful information that may help: https://support.paybyphone.com/hc/en-us.
The PayByPhone app uses a zone number (which determines location) and your license plate to let Parking Enforcement know that you paid.
No. You must enter the zone number where your car is physically located so that Parking Enforcement knows you paid and can locate your vehicle in its corresponding zone.
Contact the Parking Division at 603-225-8640.
Yes you may; however, you may not use the app to purchase additional parking so that you will exceed maximum time limits in the meter zone. Exceeding maximum time limits constitutes meter feeding, which is a violation and subject to ticketing.
