Location and Access
The Parking Garage is located on the West side of The Center. The garage has entrances on 7th Street and Washington Street. The maximum height clearance for the garage is 6' 6".
The Parking Garage is a fully automated garage, operating 24 hours a day. There are no attendants on duty, however we have 24 hour security on property should any problems arise.
A ticket is issued before the gate opens to allow your entry to the Parking Garage. Please note, no attendant is on duty; the garage is fully automated.
To exit, you can choose to pay one of two ways:
Pay at the gate by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover cards
Pay at one of the Pay on Foot stations by cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover
Pay on Foot stations are located near each stairwell in the garage at street level (Level 3). There is also a station in The Center’s Main Lobby for your convenience.
- You must have your ticket with you to use a Pay on Foot station.
If you pay at a Pay on Foot station, and you would like a receipt, please be sure to press the button on the station labeled “Receipt.” The exit gate will NOT issue you a receipt if you have paid at the Pay on Foot station.
After you have paid, you will have 15 minutes to exit the garage without incurring additional fees. When you exit, simply insert your prepaid ticket into the machine and the gate will open.
