Leesburg Debuts New Automated Payment System in Town Hall Parking Garage

Hours of operation and rates unchanged.

Post Date:04/11/2018 4:44 PM

Leesburg, VA (April 11, 2018) – The newly installed automated payment system at the Town Hall Parking Garage will go into operation on Monday, April 23, 2018.

The hours of operation for paid parking remain Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. However, the merchant validation program has been discontinued and replaced with an additional hour of free parking for all patrons. Parking rates also remain the same, with the exception of the additional hour of free parking. The first two hours are free and each additional hour (or portion of an hour) is $1.00 with a $10.00 daily maximum.

With the new system, entry and exit gates will always be down, and drivers will have to take tickets to enter the garage at all times. Drivers should take their tickets with them and pay at one of three pay stations before exiting the garage. After paying, drivers will insert tickets into the exit kiosks and the gates will rise, allowing them to exit. Drivers will have 15 minutes from time of payment to exit the garage without additional charges. All pay stations will accept credit and debit cards. The pay station by the parking garage elevator will accept cash payments in addition to credit and debit payments. 

Drivers will be able to exit onto either Market Street or Loudoun Street, and the exit kiosks will accept credit and debit card payments. A future enhancement to the new system will be automated “Lot Full” signs at both entrances.
