Reading Parking Authority offering expanded office hours Reading, PA—To better meet the needs of its constituents, the Reading Parking Authority
(RPA) administrative office is now open Saturdays from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

RPA Executive Director Nathan Matz understands the need to offer expanded hours. “Many
people work during normal business hours. Saturday hours offer our constituents added
flexibility when they need in-person customer service,” said Matz.

“Recent changes to the No Parking sign process are also an important factor. Anyone that
needs to purchase signs can now reach us six days a week.”

Saturday hours will not be available on holiday weekends. However, the Authority is also
continuously expanding the services it offers online so constituents have 24/7 access to the assistance they need.
As of February 1, 2021, City Ordinance allows parking meters
to be enforced on Saturdays
Meter enforcement hours are now Monday through Saturday from
8:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
NOTE: Enforcement hours will be expanded on days a public
event is held.
The ParkMobile app makes meter parking a breeze.
  • No coins? No problem.
  • Need to refill the meter? Get text alerts and add time right from your phone.
  • Worried about the spread of COVID-19? Contactless payment is available using the free app.
