Meter Debit Card

The Concord Card

The City of Concord is now offering pre-paid parking meter debit cards that are available for purchase at the Concord Police Department located at:
35 Green St.
Concord, NH 03301

At this time the parking meter debit cards can be used in the on-street parking kiosks, single space on-street meters, and the pay-by-space kiosks located in the Firehouse Garage and the Durgin Garage. View the map (PDF) to locate these structures.

The cards are available in denominations of $20 at the Reception Desk at the Police Department from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday. All cards are rechargeable.

How to Use the Concord Card in the Kiosk

  1. Insert the card into the front of the meter, following the direction of the arrow.
  2. Leave your card inserted during the entire transaction. Only remove the card after you obtain a receipt.
  3. Follow the directions to complete your transaction.
  4. Obtain a receipt. Remove the card.
  5. If using an on-street kiosk, return to your vehicle and put the receipt inside, on the dash, so that the Parking Officer will be able to read it.
  6. If using a kiosk in one of the parking garages, you do not need to display the receipt inside your vehicle. Because these spaces are numbered and you already entered your space number into the kiosk, there is no need to display your receipt. You may keep it as your receipt of payment and a reminder of which space you parked in.

How to Use the Concord Card in a Single Space Meter

  1. Insert the card into the front of the meter, following the direction of the arrow.
  2. While the card is inserted, the meter will automatically begin deducting value from your card in increments of $0.25.
  3. When the card has credited your meter with the desired amount of time or the maximum time limit (10 hours), quickly remove your card.

How to Get Additional Credit On Your Concord Card

  • If you need to add additional credit to your Concord Card you can contact the Parking Control Unit at 603-225-8640 and arrange a time to have this process completed (no service charge to recharge an existing card). Recharges may be in any amount up to $100.
  • If you have a business or co-workers that use the Concord Card (five or more users), you can contact the Parking Control Unit to be added to the monthly re-charge program and we will come to your office.

The Concord Card is like money and should be treated as such. The Concord Card does not guarantee you a parking space, nor does it allow you to park longer than the maximum time allowed at a meter. The Concord Card is very durable and can withstand considerable heat, cold, and moisture. The card is unaffected by magnetic or x-ray exposure. Since normal usage should not affect your Concord Card, no refund will be issued if it becomes damaged and unusable. We will also not issue refunds for unused balances, as they do not expire.
