Mayor and Council Approve Increases to Parking Fines

Motorists could face $250 fines for illegally parking near fire hydrants, in fire lanes or in designated handicap parking spaces after the 
Mayor and Council approved increases that bring fines in the City of Rockville in line with those of neighboring jurisdictions.

The City of Rockville offers nearly 550 spaces for metered parking. The city no longer accepts credit card payments via meter swipe. The city does not operate any parking garages.

Our meters only accept quarters as cash payment and ParkMobile as the online mobile payment option.


The ParkMobile app is available for both iPhone and Android devices. Pay for parking and extend parking by following the instructions in the app.

Handicap Parking

All metered spaces in the city are free with valid handicap identification. Illegally parking in a handicap space will result in a fine.

Broken Meters

If a meter is not registering time with the insertion of quarters, you must either park elsewhere or pay with the mobile app. If the mobile app is down or malfunctioning, you must either park elsewhere or pay with quarters.
