DIB-Managed Parking: Positive Changes in the Works

Parking is a top priority for the DIB. As our district becomes more vibrant and successful, addressing parking challenges is a constant focus, and we are launching major improvements that will help us provide a more convenient, intuitive parking experience. 

Forty broken and obsolete parking meters are being upgraded to modern standards. An efficient, more accurate “pay-by-plate” system is being introduced. And soon you won’t need to walk back to your car to put a parking receipt on your dash. We are also vetting a shortlist of top parking app providers to make sure we have the best choice for Pensacola. We’ll provide updates on how these changes may impact the public early and often.

In the meantime, we are working to educate everyone on the importance of having your license plate number handy when you park downtown. Be sure to take a photo of your license plate or write your tag number down, as you will need it to park downtown starting Oct. 20.
