The City will begin installing approximately 40 new parking pay stations, to
include 12 to 14 more in the VCU area in late November.
The locations for the pay stations near VCU are:
- 600 and 700 blocks of West Franklin Street
- 600 and 700 blocks of West Main Street
- 300 through 500 blocks of West Franklin Street
The new stations, near the campus, are being placed in areas where there are no parking
meters and on-street parking is time-regulated with a two-hour limit.
The City began replacing parking meters with pay stations in the Central Business District in
2012. To date, approximately 125 parking stations have been installed.
It costs 75 cents per hour to park at a pay station. The meters accept credit cards, debit cards,
cash and coins. The machines dispense a receipt that must be placed on the dashboard and is
visible from the windshield.
