Map of Long-Term Meter Locations

Information about “Pay & Display” parking stations located around the USC State Capital Center.A Pay & Display Station is an automated kiosk that replaces multiple meters on a block. The station accepts credit cards and coins, and it provides users with printed receipts to be displayed on the streetside window. The receipts are to be posted on the streetside window inside the vehicle. Additionally, printed receipts offer two benefits: they allow the user to take the remaining time on the ticket to another parking spot and they provide a convenient record of expenses for business and tax purposes.
