When a department pays for visitor parking

  • Department provides the visitor with a validated ticket.
  • Upon exit, the visitor scans their entry ticket and then their validated ticket at the exit verifier. You may also use the pay-on-foot station, following the instructions below.
How to use pay-on-foot stations
  • Take a timed ticket at entrance gate. Keep ticket with you, not in your car. (Lost ticket or no form of payment incurs $20 fee.)
  • While returning to your car, insert the timed ticket into the pay-on-foot station, and pay the amount due indicated on the screen or insert validated ticket. Credit card payments accepted. Ticket will be credited, allowing 10 minutes to return to vehicle and go to exit lane.
  • Pay-on-foot station locations: Cone Visitor Deck, top level; Union Visitor Deck, levels 4 and 6; East Deck 1, level 1; and CRI Deck 1, levels 1 and 4.
