As one of the "greenest" and most environmentally friendly cities in the world, one of the most important aspects of appreciating Portland is parking your car and getting out and walking! Cut down on your fuel consumption and help preserve the environment by finding a place to park quickly and without having to circle the blocks. And our parking tips below will show you where to find that perfect Portland parking spot!
Pro Tip 1: If you are parking at a street meter make sure to check the signs for rate and time limit. Short-term meters (time limit of less than 4 hours) do not allow you to "feed the meter" so you must MOVE your vehicle after the time limit has expired to avoid getting a ticket. Meters with time limits of 4 hours or longer will allow you to add more money to the meter. Time limits are only in effect during posted enforceable hours.
Pro Tip 2: There are electric vehicle charging stations at the short-term parking garages at the Portland International Airport.
