Visitors to County’s Rockville Offices can Now Pay to Park with Credit Card

Visitors to the Executive Office Building at 101 Monroe Street, the Council Office Building (COB) at 100 Maryland Avenue, or other County offices in downtown Rockville now can use credit cards -- in addition to cash -- to pay for parking.  Visitor parking is free in the COB garage , accessible from either Jefferson or Monroe streets.

The cashier at the garage will now accept your credit card and swipe it.  Penn Parking manages this garage under a contract with the Department of Transportation’s Parking Management Division.

Visitor parking is available for a fee between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.  The first hour is $1.00; each additional hour, $2.50.

The Jury lot on the corner of Jefferson and Monroe streets, across from the visitor garage, is reserved by County Security patrols for Circuit Court jurors until 9:30 a.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and sometimes, Thursdays.  After 9:30 a.m., parking in the lot is free.

For information on parking options in County parking lot districts, visit the Division of Parking Management’s website or call 311 Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; TTY: 301-251-4850.
