New Parking Rates Effective July 1
As of July 1, City parking lots, garages, and on-street spaces have standard parking rates based on their location within one of three zones throughout Fort Lauderdale. The new hourly parking rates may reflect either decreases or increases in some areas. Residents are encouraged to apply for a special rate when using PayByPhone.
The City of Fort Lauderdale's Transportation and Mobility Department invites all residents to apply online for our Resident Parking Rate Program. This program is designed to provide a special rate for neighbors while parking in City parking lots, garages, and on-street spaces using PayByPhone. The rate does not apply when paying at a parking meter. No in-person on mail-in applications will be accepted.
Please note that applications take approximately 3-5 businesses days to process before the resident rate is enabled on PayByPhone. If there are any issues with your application, additional time may be needed.

The City of Fort Lauderdale has made a new digital parking permit feature available for all of our neighbors.
The digital permitting feature will allow you to apply for a Residential Beach Parking Permit online. Once an application is submitted, it will be reviewed by one of our parking customer service representatives. If the application is approved, then you will receive an email directing you back to our parking portal to pay for your permit. Once you pay for your permit, your account will be updated to show that you have purchased a Residential Beach Parking Permit, which is valid for one year. You no longer have to apply for, renew, or pick up your permit from Parking Services. You can do everything online and your license tag now serves as your permit.
For more information on this feature, please contact parking customer service at
