City of Birmingham Parking Information
All parking meters located in the City of Birmingham offer payment by credit card as an option. Learn more at www.bhamgov.org/smartmeters.
The system does not accept cash and it does not require the use of a ticket, which prevents backups from occurring when a driver is stopped at the exit and unable to locate their ticket. Monthly permit holders simply hold up their access cards to a scanner at the entrance and exit. Previous access cards will be disabled.
In addition, each structure has signs that display the number of spots available at the structure. Those driving by the structure will easily see how many spaces are open. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 248-540-9690.

The City’s parking policy applies to any public street that has individually marked parking spaces and all municipal lots. The City provides reserved, marked accessible spaces at the ratio of at least one parking space per 25 that exist on any city block. The spaces are metered and subject to time limitations and fees. Consistent with neighboring communities, parking for free at any meter or at yellow curbed zones is not permitted.
