Ticketless Payment Option Now Available in City Parking Facilities

As part of ongoing efforts to make City-owned parking lots and garages more convenient and accessible, customers can now use a new ticketless parking payment system. This system gives users the choice to forgo taking a paper ticket when entering a City-owned parking garage or lot. Instead, users may swipe their credit card upon entering the facility, and swipe again when exiting to pay for parking.

Ticketless parking payment systems are now in place in the Houston Street, St. Mary’s,
Convention Center, and Library Garages, along with Dolorosa and Market Square

For Houston Street Garage only:  All patrons receiving validations at Houston Street Garage should continue to take a paper ticket, rather than use the ticketless payment option.  Parking validations can only be used with paper tickets at this facility.
