As part of the ParkMobile rollout, the City is pleased to announce a new Resident Parking Discount Program. Qualified residents of the City of Portsmouth are eligible to receive a $.50 per hour discount from the hourly rate in any metered on-street or surface lot zone (garages are not eligible). Residents who have EasyPark devices and prefer to keep using those devices will be able to receive the $.50 per hour discount as well.
How to Qualify for the Portsmouth Resident Parking Discount Program **
Interested Portsmouth residents may visit the parking offices at the new Foundry Garage at 100 Foundry Place and see the attendant to apply. Attendants can take applications 24 hours daily, seven days a week, and one hour of validated parking will be provided to complete the application.
As with the EasyPark devices, Residents will need the following to qualify for residency under the program:
- Valid New Hampshire driver’s license with Portsmouth address;
- Current Vehicle Registration with Portsmouth address; and
- One of the following:
- Current utility bill showing name and Portsmouth address; or
- Current, fully-executed rental agreement showing name and Portsmouth address
**Residency status must be renewed every two years to remain active in the system as a resident and qualify for discounted parking.
Users with Resident List plates will be shown pricing specific to Portsmouth residents when using the ParkMobile app.
