How to Buy a Parking Permit

For frequent transit riders, Metro offers parking permit options at select stations that can be purchased online.  Here's how it works and how to buy:

Daily Parking Permit

Paying for daily parking is easy and convenient – just follow three simple steps: Park. Pay. Ride.

  • Arrive at the station and park your vehicle.
  • Pay for parking at the on-site kioks, with the Metro Parking mobile app (available through Google Play and the App Store ) or online at .
  • Ride transit.

To complete this transaction, you will need the following:

  • Vehicle license plate number
  • TAP card number
  • Form of payment
  • Parking lot zone number (when paying online or w/Metro Parking app)

Not all stations require daily parking permits so be sure to refer to the Parking Lots by Line to see if your station requires paid daily parking.

Metro Monthly Permit

Metro Monthly Parking Permits are a convenient option for frequent transit riders . Your license plate serves as your permit so the process is easy.  Refer to Parking Lots by Line to see if your station offers this option.

Patrons are encouraged to take note of the specified window of time that dedicated spaces for monthly permit holders are enforced.   Non-permitted vehicles are sometimes allowed to park in these spaces after peak morning hours provided they vacate the space before 4 am the next morning.

  • You must ride transit a minimum of 10 days per month.
  • Vehicle info (make, model, color, license plate number)
