Text to Park!T2 Graphic

The City utilizes a text-to-park system that is a browser-based parking payment solution that does not require parkers to download an app. All you do is text CITYOFMS to 25023, enter your parking and payment information, and go on your way. Afterwards, if you need extra time, you can extend your parking time directly from your phone by using the same method.

Using the Kiosks

  1. Press any key to start
  2. Enter your license plate number
  3. Select your rate
  4. Make your payment
  5. Optional (receive SMS reminders)
  6. Take your receipt

Parking Tips

  1. We offer 30-minute free parking at all paid on-street parking spaces.
    1. You MUST register for the free 30-minute parking at the kiosk. To do this, please follow the same process you would to pay for a space.
  2. If you entered the wrong license plate number, please leave your ticket on your dashboard.
  3. Please note that you can’t pay for or extend parking on Ruxton from a Downtown kiosk, or vice versa.
  4. Only pay or extend your time in the public lots at a meter in the lot where you parked or by our Text2Park system: just text CITYOFMS to 25023 and select your location.
  5. If a kiosk does not print a receipt, it may be out of paper. Call (719) 301-8413 to request a refill, or walk away knowing your license plate was recorded as “paid” if the screen showed the expiration time.
  6. Parking on Ruxton is signed with detailed instructions. Please read all signs closed to where you parked.
  7. Our uniformed parking ambassadors are always glad to assist or answer your questions.
