Pay and Display

A Pay & Display pay station is an automated multi-space parking meter. Time receipts are dispensed to be displayed on the dash of the vehicle for enforcement purposes. Payment options include credit cards, bills, and coins for customer convenience. Receipts are only valid in the lot purchased. Each Pay Station is labeled with specific information. Motorcyclists must pay and display a valid receipt on their motorcycle. To help avoid theft of the receipt, the license tag # should be written on the receipt. In addition, the stub of the receipt should be torn off and kept with the driver.

Just Pay, Print, & Display!
