Pay Stations

Parking in downtown San Antonio just got easier!

Pay stations have replaced several traditional parking meters. These 134 solar-powered parking pay stations service multiple parking spaces and reduce clutter on streets and sidewalks. In addition, parking pay stations accept both coins and debit/credit cards and provide customers with a receipt for every transaction.

Why a parking pay station?

  • Accepts coins, credit and debit cards
  • Automated kiosk replaces multiple parking meters
  • Provides customer receipts
  • Communicates in English and Spanish
  • Permits use of remaining parking time at another location
    • Note: Using remaining time is limited to the maximum parking time for the meter.  For example, if you have 3 hours remaining on your receipt, and move to a 2 hour meter, you can only use up to 2 hours at that new location (the maximum time for that meter).  Parking beyond the posted meter limit is a violation that is subject to citation.
