Ocean City Inlet Lot Parking

$3.00 per hour

Remember, you’re first 30 minutes are free, including handicapped!

April 1st – October 31st.

Some helpful information:
  • Inlet Parking Lot visitors can pay for the desired amount of time when you park or before you leave your parking space by paying for the amount of time you stayed. Remember, you’re first 30 minutes are free!
  • You do not need to display a receipt on your dash. Instead, you enter your license plate at a nearby kiosk & the system will recognize your “paid time” based on your vehicle. (Note: You will need to know your complete license plate including letters.) You may also pay with the ParkMobile App.
  • Parking in the Inlet Lot is $3.00 per hour.
  • A violation of Inlet Lot Parking will result in a mailed bill of time spent in the lot at $3 per hour, plus a $25 administrative fee. This fee will escalate to $50 if not paid within 30 days. Patrons must pay for expired time prior to leaving the Inlet Lot to avoid being billed for additional administrative costs.
  • Need help? Parking lot ambassadors are available at the booth located in the center of the inlet parking lot (Row E).

Street & Municipal Lot Parking

$2.00 per hour with one hour free for handicapped parking (must have handicapped plates or a visible placard).

April 1st – October 31st.
To use on-street or municipal parking lot kiosks; park, take a moment to write down or snap a photo of your license plate, walk to the nearest pay station, enter your license plate number (including letters), the length of time you wish to stay, and your payment. You no longer need to post your receipt on the dash, unless a message is displayed on the kiosk.
Some helpful information:
  • Unlike the Inlet Parking Lot, on-street & municipal lot parking requires that you MUST pay for your desired amount of time WHEN YOU PARK.
  • Parking paid at 100th St. lot does NOT apply to parking at the Inlet, on-street parking, or other municipal lots.
  • A violation of Street Parking & other Municipal Lot parking will result in a physical parking ticket ($50 fine) which can be voided if payment is made at a pay station for expired time within one hour of receiving the ticket.

PARKING FAQ’S

Do I have to place my receipt on the Dashboard?

No, you can just pay & go!

How does the enforcement officer know I have paid?

Our on-street & municipal parking lot enforcement officers use a handheld device that displays a listing of paid plates.  Our Inlet Parking Lot uses a camera enforcement system to verify payment.

Do I pay when I park or do I pay when I leave my space?

For parking on-street or in municipal lots:  you MUST pay for your desired amount of time when you park.

For parking in the Inlet Parking Lot: You can pay for your desired amount of time when you park OR you can pay before you leave the Inlet Lot by paying for the amount of time you stayed. Remember, your first 30 minutes are free. NOTE: The Inlet Lot is camera enforced and failure to pay will result in a billed fine for the amount of time you owe, plus $25.

Can I extend my parking session at the Payment Kiosk?

Yes! You can also EASILY extend your parking session through the PARKMOBILE app or by using a similar payment kiosk as your initial transaction.

  • For parking on-street or in municipal lots: If you made an initial transaction at an on-street/municipal lot payment kiosk, you can extend your time from any other kiosk (excluding the Inlet Lot) up to the maximum time limit.
  • For parking in the Inlet Parking Lot: If you make a payment at the Inlet Lot you can ONLY extend at a payment kiosk in the Inlet Lot.
