Payment method in the West Garage:

If you intend to pay the daily rate in the West garage, we ask that you pull a ticket (a “spitter” ticket) upon entering and prior to returning to your vehicle, please visit a Pay-On-Foot machine located on the ground level in the elevator lobbies.  Here you insert your spitter ticket into the machine and you will be shown the balance due for your stay.  Choose a payment option of either cash or credit/debit card.  Once payment is made you will receive a validated ticket and a transaction receipt.  In the exit drive lane, you should insert your validated ticket into the exit machine, per the instructions found on the machine, and the gate arm will lift for your safe departure.

Multi-Park Passes

Refunds will be based on the remaining uses on your Multi-Park Pass.  When you purchased your Multi-Park Pass you were afforded a volume discount; if you did not use the Pass fully we will credit or refund you the value of the remaining uses at the price/use you paid when you purchased the Multi-Park Pass.  As an example, if you purchased a 60 Park Pass for $300.00 ($5.00/use) and you used it 40 times, you would be refunded the difference between 40 uses at and 20 at $5.00/use, so you would receive $100.00 back. This saving can be applied toward a new pass or refunded.  PLEASE NOTE - THE LAST DAY TO TURN IN YOUR MULTI-PARK PASSES FOR REIMBURSEMENT WILL BE MAY 31, 2019.
