Where can I park my motorcycle or mopeds?
Motorcycle may park at parking meters for a fee or park for up to 10 hours for free at designated motorcycle/moped parking areas.


Motorcyclists need to pay to park motorcycles at parking meters. Receipts from multispace meters must be securely displayed on the motorcycle. Detach the perforated stub and take it with you as a receipt in the event the receipt falls off your motorcycle.

Additionally, there are various locations where motorcycles can park for free at motorcycle / moped only designated spots throughout the city.

The City of Portland has dedicated certain on street parking areas to be used exclusively by motorcycles / mopeds only, allowing them to park for up to 10 hours for free without moving. The City Council approved this to enhance the viability of alternative transportation choices as well as free up existing vehicle parking spaces now used by mopeds and motorcycles.
