Resident parking discount available by registering your license plate

New ParkNow Cards will not be issued; remaining balances can be used


Effective immediately, the City of St. Augustine is no longer issuing new ParkNow Cards.  The card reader technology is being phased out and card inventory is no longer available.


“License plate recognition (LPR) saves residents time, and more importantly reduces the effort necessary to obtain and maintain the ParkNow Card,” announced Public Works Director Todd Grant, who also supervises the Parking Division.  “Once you register your license plate, you no longer need the card – at all.”


Here’s what you need to know:

  • Current ParkNow cards with funds will still work in the meters/kiosks and at the parking garage and should be used until balances are depleted. 
  • Residents can transfer existing funds from the ParkNow Card to a virtual wallet on the ParkStAug mobile app.  The card must be surrendered to the Parking Division, so this must be done in person at 50 Bridge Street.
  • When parking in a surface lot or parking space, residents will enter the registered license plate number at the parking kiosk to receive the resident discount.
  • Beginning in 2024, when parking at the parking garage, the electronic license plate reader will recognize the registered plate number and automatically apply the St. Johns County Resident discount rate upon entry to the garage.  Until then, existing ParkNow cards should be used.
  • Beginning Thursday, December 21, depleted ParkNow Cards will not be recharged.

The ParkStAug mobile app is available from the Apple and Google Play stores for additional mobile parking pay options.
