Pay stations at the Kimmel Parking garage
The automated parking system at the Kimmel Center garage is similar to the PPA street parking pay stations that you can find on many streets throughout the city. The automated system streamlines the parking experience by reducing the bottleneck upon entering. Each parking space is numbered and visitors enter their number at the pay stations located in each of the three elevator lobbies in the garage. Payment can be made by credit, debit or cash. There is also a smart phone app available that allows patrons to set up a pay by phone account.
