Downtown Parking

Print
As we transition to a new state-of-the-art meter system, the pay-by-phone feature will be temporarily unavailable for downtown Redwood City parking meters.  This feature is estimated to back online within two weeks, once the transition is complete.  Signs will be posted next to and on the meters to let patrons know when the feature will be available again.

 

Redwood City offers convenient downtown parking in lots, garages, and on-street spaces. Learn more below.
