Paystations

Paystations provide easy payment options for hourly parking on UTSA campuses. Automated Pay Stations require payment by inserting a ticket at the end of your visit, prior to returning to your vehicle. Pay by Space locations require pre-payment by entering the number of the parking space where your vehicle is parked, similar to a parking meter.

Automated Pay Station

Automated Pay Stations (APS) require payment by inserting a ticket at the end of your visit. Pay at a parking garage paystation before returning to your vehicle and exiting the garage. Keep your ticket away from cell phones, magnets, or electronic devices to prevent demagnetization of the magnetic stripe.
