Parking meters and fees

Brisbane City Council uses parking meters across the inner city to regulate parking where on-street parking is in high demand. Short to medium-term parking meters operate in areas where turnover of on-street parking spaces is necessary. Metered parking spaces are available for both cars and motorcycles.

Removed parking meters - February 2022 weather event

Some parking meters were damaged during the February 2022 severe weather event and have been removed. These parking spaces will accept payment by mobile payments only. See below for a full list of these locations. If you wish to park in one of these locations you can pay via Council's mobile payment provider CellOPark

For more information visit the CellOPark website or download the app from the Google Play Store or Apple Store.

If you do not wish to use CellOPark, parking meters in other locations are available. Please be aware that if you have not paid for your parking or if you overstay the time limit, you may be fined.
