On-Street Pay Station Tutorial

On-Street Pay Stations:

Below is a brief tutorial on how to use the 136 newly installed solar-powered pay stations for on-street parking in downtown Lansing. This new technology is easy to use, convenient and efficient. The pay stations will be programmed with a time limit for on-street parking depending what zone you are parked in.

How it works:

  1. Park your vehicle as usual.
  2. Make a note of your license plate number.
  3. Look for any conveniently located pay station. 
  4. Press the start key to “wake” the unit from power save mode.
  5. Using the key pad enter your license plate number and zone number your vehicle is located in, then press the green check mark button to confirm.
  6. Insert your payment method of change or credit/debit card.
  7. Select your stay time using the blue “-” and “+” buttons shown on the key pad. Press the red cancel button if you need to start over.
  8. Press the green button on the key pad to confirm stay time and your receipt will be printed.
  9. Take your receipt with you. The time your parking expires is printed right on the receipt.
