On-Street Enforcement

I Want To...

The Allentown Parking Authority generally enforces parking Monday through Friday from 3:00am through 11:00pm city wide, although enforcement is not limited to those hours. Saturdays are patrolled from 8:00am through 6:00pm and Sundays from 8:00am through 4:30pm.

Meter Enforcement

Parking Meters are enforced Monday through Saturday from 8:00am through 9:00pm in the Core PPL Event Area – Hamilton Street, from 4th to 12th Streets and the unit blocks north and south of Hamilton Street (Linden to Walnut Streets) from 4th to 12 Streets. The rate to park at these meters is $2.00 per hour and payment may be made with coins, bills, credit/debit cards, or with your Park Mobile mobile app. If a Parking Meter or Paystation is inoperable, please report it to the APA and park at a functioning Meter and/or use a PayStation located within the same zone. Parking in a space with an inoperable Meter and/or Paystation is subject to violation.

Meters in all other locations are enforced Monday through Saturday, from 8:00am through 6:00pm. The rate to park at these meters is $1.00 per hour and payment may be made with coins, or with your Park Mobile mobile app.

Metered parking is not enforced on Sundays UNLESS there is a PPL Event. Metered spaces are enforced in the PPL Center Area beginning 2 hours PRIOR to the event start time.

Metered parking will not be enforced on the following holidays of this year (2021): New Year’s Day; MLK Day; President’s Day; Memorial Day; July 4th; Labor Day; Thanksgiving Day; and Christmas Day. ALL OTHER PARKING VIOLATIONS WILL BE ENFORCED.
