|As we transition to a new state-of-the-art meter system, the pay-by-phone feature will be temporarily unavailable for downtown Redwood City parking meters. This feature is estimated to back online within two weeks, once the transition is complete. Signs will be posted next to and on the meters to let patrons know when the feature will be available again.|
Redwood City offers convenient downtown parking in lots, garages, and on-street spaces. Learn more below.

ADA-FRIENDLY PARKING: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) allows any person with a valid placard to park on-street or in any surface lot without having to pay a meter or be limited in duration. This applies to both designated ADA spaces and any standard parking spaces. However, anyone parking in the City garages, including those with ADA placards, must pay a parking fee. Throughout the downtown you will find many designated ADA spaces for use by anyone with a valid ADA placard.
VALIDATION: Patrons of the Century 20 Downtown Redwood City movie theater receive four hours of free parking in the Marshall Street Garage and the Jefferson Garage with a validation from Century.
HOLIDAY PARKING: Parking is FREE for on-street parking spaces and in the surface parking lots on holidays only. Parking is not free on holidays in the parking garages.
