Beginning Tuesday, October 22, 2019, parking patrons of the Duane/Lorraine lot will experience two new user-friendly ways to pay for daily parking.
New Electronic Kiosks
New electronic kiosks will replace the current pay boxes in the lot. The two new kiosks will accept both credit cards and the exact amount of cash, with no additional user fees. The daily rate for parking will remain the same at $2 per day. Following the launch of the new kiosks, the current pay boxes will be removed and will no longer be available.
Over the first couple days of the initial launch, Village employees and kiosk representatives will be on site to help assist users. The Village is aiming to provide a swift and efficient launch of the new pay stations, but we encourage commuters to allow for extra time while becoming oriented with the new system.
Please note that procedures and parking spaces allocated for special license parking will not be impacted by the introduction of the electronic pay boxes.
Passport Parking App
Pay by phone and online options will also be available for parking patrons by visiting the Passport Parking website or by downloading the Passport Parking App. When utilizing this option, there is a $0.37 convenience fee applied to the $2 daily rate.
In addition, if a user receives a parking citation within the Duane/Lorraine lot, there will be an option to pay the fine through the Village's website. Users will be able to find this by clicking on Make a Payment on the home page of the website. A 2.25% fee of the total fine amount (minimum $1.00 fee) will be applied for payments using this online payment avenue. Users can continue to pay for a citation at the police station, 65 S. Park Boulevard, with no convenience fee added.
Know Your Plate
Once live on October 22, both the kiosks and the Passport app will be Pay by Plate. Please be sure you know your license plate in order to effectively pay for parking.
