Pay On Foot Stations

There are 2 types of pay on foot stations available to pay for your parking before you leave the parking ramp:

  • Cash and Credit Card Stations are available on the first level of Calhoun Square near Famous Dave’s and the second level of Calhoun Square near the public restrooms (close to the skyway).
  • Credit Card Only Stations are available in the ramp on the skyway level near the elevator and in the ramp on level 1 near the walkway to the Famous Dave’s entrance.

Credit Card In & Out

Instead of paying at a Pay On Foot Station, you may use your credit card at a ramp entrance and exit. When you enter, do not push the button for a ticket. Instead, insert your credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Amex) into the garage entry station. You will not receive a ticket. When you leave the ramp, insert the same credit card into the exit station. A receipt will be issued.
