The City installed a new kiosk on the south side of the downtown Metra station to make the payment process more convenient for users of the daily fee parking spaces in the City’s commuter lots and spaces.
As part of the City’s transition from using parking meters to more convenient parking payment methods, the City has deactivated the parking space meters located on Front Street between Western and Gary Avenue. People using these spaces can now pay either using the Passport Parking app, www.passportparking.com, or by using cash or credit at any of the City’s parking kiosks.
Please note that whichever way you choose to pay, you will need to know your license plate number as well as your Parking Zone number which you will enter either at the kiosk or on your mobile phone (if using the Passport Parking app). Parking Zone numbers are indicated on signs throughout the City’s parking areas.
