ParkPortsmouth Launches Stay & Pay Program on Monday Aug 17

August 13, 2020

The Portsmouth City Council has approved the implementation of the Department of Public Works Parking Division’s new Stay & Pay program, effective Monday, August 17, 2020.  

A new feature of the City’s advanced parking meter software, the Stay & Pay program gives users of on-street and surface lot parking the convenience of not having to move their vehicles after the time limit for the space has expired. 

After the third hour, residents and visitors will instead have the option to continue parking at a higher per hour rate: $5 per hour (a $3 per hour increase) for A-Zone parking  and $3 per hour (a $1.50 per hour increase) for B-Zone parking. The new Stay & Pay program applies to all metered on-street and surface lot parking, and will be available in the ParkMobile app, the EasyPark devices and at the meters.

Verified residents using the ParkMobile app will continue to enjoy reduced-rate pricing under the new Stay & Pay Program, paying just $1 more per hour to remain in their parked location after the previously-enforced time limit in either Zone.

Parking in either the Foundry Place Garage or Hanover Garage is not affected and will remain at the current pricing
