Payment can be made by cash or credit card. Credit card payment can also be made at the exit terminals when leaving the garage. Payment can also be made by using a credit card upon entering the garage in lieu of a ticket. Cash is not accepted at the exit terminals.

Smart Card Transfer Plan:

Smart Card holders are encouraged to use their existing balance in the Spring Street garage.  Princeton is creating a process to transfer the smart card balances to the Park Princeton mobile parking app.  More details regarding transfers will be provided by the end of June 2019.  Please be advised that there is a convenience fee debited for every parking transaction paid for through the Park Princeton app.  The fee is currently $0.35 per transaction; however, Princeton has received a commitment from Passport Parking, the mobile app vendor, for a reduced fee.

There are also two privately owned garages with public parking at 11 Hulfish and 25 Chambers Streets.
