Philadelphia, one of the country’s most walkable cities, is incredibly easy to navigate either by foot or by public transportation. That just leaves one question: Where to park the car?

On-Street Parking

Philadelphia has thousands of metered spots throughout the city, perfect if you only plan to park for an hour or two. Each residential and business area of the city has parking regulations tailored to that neighborhood’s needs; signs indicate the time limit and the hours during which the meter must be paid. Every metered block also includes one space reserved for people with disabilities.

Neighborhood Parking

Some Philly neighborhoods offer permit parking for area residents. Visitors are allowed to park on these streets for up to two hours, and will be ticketed if they stay longer than that. Be sure to read all parking signs very carefully before leaving your car to avoid ticketing and towing during hours in which parking may be prohibited.
