Multi-space Pay Stations

Penn State Transportation Services offers Pay-by-Space and Pay-by-License parking pay stations in select campus lots. These pay stations offer the public a greater range of options and increased convenience when paying for parking.

Pay-by-License

Lots utilizing Pay-by-License pay stations use the license plate number of the vehicle. Visitors need to note the license plate number of their vehicle, which will be entered in the pay station. The pay station will assign payment to the license plate number entered.

Pay-by-Space

Lots utilizing Pay-by-Space pay stations use numbers assigned to each parking space. Each number will be displayed on a sign at the head of each space. When parking in a Pay-by-Space lot customers must note the space number, which will be entered in the pay station. The pay station will assign payment to the specified space.

How to Use Multi-Space Pay Stations

Using the multi-space pay stations is simple and easy:

  1. Park your vehicle.
  2. Note your space number or vehicle license plate number.
  3. Find a pay station.
