City Of Frostburg Parking

The City of Frostburg has ample street parking and municipal parking lots throughout downtown regulated through parking meters. Meter parking is enforced Monday through Friday, 9:00 am - 6:00 pm. 

Parking fees are $.50/hour, for a maximum of two hours. Coins can be inserted directly into the meter, and meters accept quarters, dimes, and nickels. The parking lots behind the public library and Saint Michael's Catholic Church are free parking lots. Overnight parking is prohibited without a permit.

The City of Frostburg has partnered with ParkMobile to enable parking meter payments via smartphone app! The app allows users the option to pay for parking with a credit/debit card, through PayPal, or via Apple Pay. The app also allows users to track the time they have left and to feed the meters (up to 2 hours maximum) using their smartphones.

Each meter has a ParkMobile sticker on it showing the parking zone number. Users can simply park, sign into the app, enter their zone number or use the GPS location feature, and pay, all from their smartphones. Vehicle information and payment methods can be saved in the app for quick and convenient entry.
