Hourly Parking

Parking Pay Stations

Automated pay stations offer customer convenience in the Civic Center. The units accept credit or debit cards and U.S. cash and coins. The detailed, printed receipt goes with you and records your stall number and expiration time. You can add time from any pay station. Pay stations are not enforced on City holidays.

Parking Meters

Parking meters require U.S. coins and cost $.75 per hour in downtown Bellingham. Most meters have a two-hour limit. Look for meter time limits posted on each meter. For longer stays, the first floor of the Parkade at 1300 Commercial Street costs $6 for a full day of parking. Parkade automated pay stations accept cash, coin and credit/debit cards. Meters are not enforced on City holidays.
