The Town of Breckenridge has implemented an innovative smart parking system. Patrons can pay for parking with credit cards at the pay station or on their smart phones without ever having to visit a pay station. Pay parking is in effect daily excluding May & October.  
Most of Downtown from Park Avenue to Ridge Street is now pay parking. A full list parking rates and hours is listed below. Please note that payment is required each time a vehicle changes location. Fifteen-minute free parking is available in most locations but parkers must still register their license plate on the app or at a meter.
