Mobile Payments for Downtown Parking Lots


Paying for parking in the Downtown Parking lots is now even easier with a new pay-by-phone option. Simply Scan, Pay, Go.

Scan. Use your smartphone camera to scan the QR code on your entrance ticket to bring up the payment portal.

Pay. The portal accepts payments from Visa, MasterCard, Discover, ApplePay, and GooglePay.

Go. The gate will lift automatically when you approach the exit. If the gate does not lift, please insert your paid parking ticket into the column.
You do not need to register or download an app to use pay-by-phone. Payment may be completed up to 10 minutes before exiting the lot.

Pay-by-phone compliments other recent equipment upgrades which expanded the existing payment options by adding NFC payments and tap-to-pay.

So, the next time you visit downtown, park and pay the easy way. Scan. Pay. Go.
