Apply for Meter Rental

Do you need to use a metered space for longer than the maximum allotted time?

Street meters can be rented for activities such as moving, construction, weddings and other special events that last less than 30 days.

The City of Orlando charges for usage of rented on-street meters seven days a week. The daily rate for meter rentals is $15 per day, per space, plus sales tax.


Step 1.Check your eligibility

Meter rentals are only for parking vehicles during approved events. They are not for long-term personal use. We do not allow food trucks, storage containers or garbage dumpsters.

Step 2.Get the meter number for the space you wish to reserve

Meter numbers are printed directly on the meter. You may also visit the Parking Division Office to look up your meter number:
