The City of Tampa's solar-powered pay stations offer parking patrons more payment options than the standard coin-only meters, making paying for parking more convenient than ever. Not only do the new pay stations accept nickels, dimes, quarters and dollar coins, but also Visa and Mastercard credit and debit cards.
"Pay Here" signs with directional arrows accompany each pay station location, directing parking patrons where to pay for their parking. You can pay for your parking at any pay station, regardless of the pay station location. All you need to do is remember your space number.
