Seacoast Parking FAQs

Can I Add Time to the Pay & Display Station to Stay Longer?

You can add time at any Pay & Display Station as long as you place your receipt on your dashboard to ensure you do not get a ticket. 

What if I Paid for More Time Than I Need?

The Division of Parks and Recreation does not issue refunds for unused time.

Is There a Size Limit to the Parking Spaces?

Yes. Maximum vehicle length is 20 feet.

Does it Cost More to Park at a Pay & Display Station?

No. Traditional parking meters and the Pay & Display system both charge the same parking fee.

What Should I do if the Pay & Display Station Doesn’t Work?

You can purchase time from any unit.  Meters communicate with parking division employees if there is a problem. A malfunctioning coin or card slot will automatically close, preventing customers from paying if a receipt cannot be issued.  You can also report an issue to Meter Patrol at 603-227-8700.

Can I Use a Disabled Permit in any Metered Parking Spot?

Currently, your disabled permit/placard allows you to park without paying however your placard MUST be hanging to avoid being ticketed.
