Mobile, Alabama On Street Parking

Parking in downtown Mobile just got easier. Republic Parking System, in partnership with the City of Mobile, has implementing a state-of- the- art parking system in downtown.

Beginning in February over 400 new meters are being installed, offering additional payment options using advanced parking technology. The meters will accept coins, credit cards, and pay-by-phone technology through the Park Mobile parking app. Simply download the Park Mobile parking app and add time to the meter remotely.

It’s easy to get started and can be done with just a couple clicks on your smart phone.
We are working to give our customers the best parking experience possible.

This website includes maps, rates, and answers to frequently asked parking questions. Along with the new meters, new signs and line striping will follow along with new, designated long-term parking zones for restaurant and hospitality workers.

We will provide visitors with access to the most convenient parking spaces at Mobile’s favorite downtown restaurants and shops.
