All meters in downtown also accept the Parkcard. The Parkcard is a programmable card that provides a cashless way to use the electronic parking meters operated by the City of St. John’s. It also allows refunds, if you return to your vehicle sooner than expected by simply inserting the Parkcard into the meter. You will be credited for any left over time. Parkcards are available at Parking Services at City Hall. They are available in $20, $50, and $100 denominations.
