  • Pay-on-Foot Machines: This garage is equipped with pay-on-foot machines. Customers receive a white entry ticket, keep it with them, and make a payment prior to returning to their vehicle--this keeps the exit line moving. Once payment is made, customers receive a returned paid/validated ticket for use at the exit gate. Pay machines accept cash, credit, and validations.
  • Cash Not Accepted at Exit Gates: While it is possible to pay at exit gates, they do not accept cash.
  • Receipts: Receipts for paid parking are offered from payment machines at the time of payment. If a receipt is not printed, customers can email with the time, date, garage location, and amount charged to receive a copy of their receipt via email.
  • Lost Parking Tickets: If you have lost your parking ticket, press the lost-ticket button on the payment machine.
