Mopeds cannot be parked in bicycle racks or on sidewalks in Iowa City. Parking is only allowed in a designated moped/motorcycle parking area which requires a permit, a metered parking space on the street, or in a parking stall in one of the City's parking ramps or lots. When parked in metered spaces, mopeds and motorcycles need to follow regular meter-parking guidelines.
Mopeds that are parked in bicycle racks or on sidewalks will be subject to a citation for parking in an unauthorized area, accompanied by a $15 fine. Fines for expired meters will be the same as for automobiles, ranging from $0 for the first offense to up to $25 for multiple infractions.
Cost of the moped and motorcycle parking permits is $90 per year. Permits may be purchased at the City's Parking Office at 335 Iowa Avenue between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. To discourage long-term storage, moped and motorcycle permit parking spaces will need to be vacated each day between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.
