Street and Metered Parking


City of Monterey Implementing New AB413 "Daylighting Bill" to Improve Pedestrian & Cyclist Safety - read the April 16, 2024 news release | AB 413 Flyer

On-Street Time Limit Parking
Time limits are clearly posted in all controlled parking areas. Look for signs or for curb markings. After you have parked in a time limit zone for the posted time you must move your vehicle at least 150 feet to avoid being cited. The Parking Enforcement section uses tire chalking and the chalk-less AutoVu System to determine the length of time a vehicle is parked in a space. It is illegal to remove a chalk mark from your vehicle's tire.

Metered Parking
In the Cannery Row District the Parking Division uses electronic parking meters which accept dollar coins, quarters, dimes and nickels, credit card payments and ParkMobile.  Each meter lists the hours of enforcement. Please read the meter carefully.

In parking spaces controlled by a parking meter, the meter must be paid as long as a vehicle is occupying the parking space within the designated time frame. There may be more than one motorcycle parked in a marked parking space, however each motorcycle must have at least one wheel against the curb. It doesn't matter which motorcycle operator paid the parking meter, as long as the meter is paid while any of the vehicles are in the parking space. When the time expires, all motorcycles in the space will considered to be in violation and are subject to receiving a citation.
