If you don't wish to use the app, you can continue paying using one of the parking kiosks located downtown. Those parking in the Wright Street Parking Deck should continue paying at the walk-up pay kiosks inside the deck or at the exit gate. We hope to offer mobile payment solutions for the parking deck in the future.
