Pay Using a Pay Station:

There is an additional way to pay for metered street parking at NIC. Two pay stations (one located on 21st Street and one located on Transformation Drive) allow visitors to pay for metered parking using a credit card or coins at a physical pay station.

How does it work? Visitors park their vehicle and then go to a pay station. At the pay station, they enter their license plate number and purchase parking. The pay station uses license plate information to identify vehicles and know that a visitor has paid.

Metered street parking at NIC is enforced Monday-Saturday from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. The parking rate is $1.25 per hour.
