Central Pay Machines (CPMs) accept coin and credit/debit card payments. Machines at lots M86, NC27, NC44, NC99, SC43 and W13 also accept cash (bills).
At every location, each parking space is individually numbered. Be sure to observe your space number as it must be entered into the CPM to make payment.
In addition to coin and credit/debit cards, visitor parking locations with CPMs now accept the Passport Mobile Payment system. The system allows users to pay parking fees from any internet-capable device – cell phone, tablet, PC, or laptop – as well as by phone, rather than at the machine.
To use the system, download the app to the device(s) of choice, complete the verification security process and enter your payment method. Enter the parking ZONE number (8636 = U of M), space number and duration of stay to establish a parking session.
CPMs offer the option of a printed receipt that lists the expiration time.
Parking sessions may be canceled before the GREEN OK button is pressed. If coin or cash has been inserted, a refund slip will be printed. Refer to the instructions on the receipt to obtain the refund. Refunds are available weekdays between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Refunds are not available after the GREEN OK button is pressed, or for excess/overpayment.
At Palmer parking structure, pay-in-lane stations are installed at two lanes to process exit transactions. Stations accept currency, coin, and debit/credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express) payment. QR-coded validation tickets issued by department hosts provide discounted or free parking. Exit assistance is available by pressing the pay station’s HELP (intercom) button.
|N26||Palmer Drive Structure||200 Washtenaw Ave.||6am – 10pm, Mon – Sat|
How To Use An Automated Pay Station

- Follow the on-screen and audio instructions
- Insert currency, coin or credit card to pay the amount indicated
- Lose your ticket? Press the “Lost Ticket” button on the pay station. The default rate for a lost ticket is $43.20, the equivalent of a 24-hour park.
