There are three ways to pay for parking. All options require you to provide your vehicle license plate number or the last eight digits of your vehicle identification number (VIN), which is then tracked for enforcement purposes. You will not need to display a tag or receipt on your vehicle’s windshield.
- Online (For daily, long-term, and monthly permits): You will be able to create a parking account on a dedicated website for up to two vehicles. Starting June 1, visit www.vta.org/payparking to create an account. On the website, you will be able to set up online payments for an entire month at a discounted rate so that no further payment will be required when you park. You will also have the option of paying for long-term parking and parking one day at a time. Parking permit sales will start on June 11.
While you can have two vehicles registered to your parking account, you will only be allowed to park one vehicle at the site at a time. If more than one vehicle is parked in a garage or surface lot, each additional vehicle parked will receive a parking ticket.
- Passport Parking App (For daily permit only): You will also be able to download the Passport Parking app to pay for parking. This app will go live once VTA opens the paid parking at the transit centers. You can use a credit or debit card for payment.
- On-Site Pay Stations (For daily and long-term permits): You will also be able to pay for parking at pay stations located on the ground floor of the garage and at surface lot entrances. The pay stations will accept cash ($1 or $5 bills), credit cards, or debit cards for payment. No change is provided. Change machines are provided on-site to break larger bills into smaller bills.
