Downtown Parking

Downtown Parking Upgrades

The City of Chico is deploying a new parking management system for metered locations around the downtown and campus areas.  Users can pay with coin or card through Smart Meter Kiosks, smart Meters, and via mobile payment using the Passport Mobile application. 

For information on how to utilize the kiosks, Click HERE.

The Smart Meter Kiosks are in parking lots and in the downtown core.  Over the next 2-3 months, additional units will be deployed to the remaining areas.  Remaining meters on blocks with newly installed kiosks will be removed by the end of the overall deployment.  

What You Need to Know:
