Smart Card Balance Transfer Application and New Parking Rates

Smart Card Balance Transfer Update

Smart Card holders will have two options for spending down any remaining balances.              

Option 1: Cardholders can use the old Smart Cards to pay for parking in the Spring Street garage. Smart Card payments will be accepted indefinitely, until the equipment fails.              

Option 2: Cardholders can have their old Smart Card balances transferred to the Park Princeton mobile app. Those wanting their balances transferred should take the following steps:

  1. Download the Park Princeton mobile app and set up a user account, if you do not have one already.
  2. Complete the online application authorizing the balance transfer
