We want to make your trip to Bethlehem and your parking experience an enjoyable one. The BPA is happy to offer multiple options for on-street payments with our most convenient option being the ParkMobile App.

With the ParkMobile app, you can,

  • Add time to your parking session.
  • Have expiration reminders sent to you.
  • Stop your parking session short if you ended up paying more time than you needed! You’ll get your unused money back!
  • Multi-language access.
  • Apple Pay.
  • Add multiple License Plates (Please be mindful of using the correct one).

Pay Stations

The Bethlehem Parking Authority is proud to announce the next phase of its continuous improvement of the parking experience in Bethlehem. Starting in 2023, the Bethlehem Parking Authority will begin to replace its aging single-space parking meters with multi-space pay stations annually.
The pay stations, which are already installed in all BPA parking lots, feature,

  • 10” full-color touchscreens.
  • Additional convenient and secure payment methods, such as,
    o Apple Pay
    o Google Pay
    o Tap to Pay
  • “Text to Extend,” which allows customers to extend their parking session through their mobile phones.
  • Multiple language interface.
