Paid parking will be implemented at four Green Line stations in June. The stations are as follows:
- June 4: Aviation/LAX and Crenshaw Station
- June 18: Lakewood and Norwalk Station
The parking rate is $3 per 24 hours. All stations will have the automated pay systems that are in use at other Metro pay parking lots. Riders will need a valid TAP card and either cash or credit card to pay. Parking kiosk locations are different for each facility but are generally located along pedestrian walkways, ground level near the elevator lobby or in the station plaza.
You can also pay for parking online at parkatmetro.net or use the Metro parking app. The app is available in the iTunes store and the Google Play store (there is a 15 cent fee to use the app so parking is $3.15 a day).
Monthly permits for these stations will become available later this year.
Under a plan approved by the Metro Board of Directors, Metro has converted some of its busiest parking lots to pay lots. The reasons are two-fold: 1) the fee helps keep some parking spaces open throughout the day for transit riders, and; 2) the fees prevent parking spaces from being taken by people not using transit.
Free spaces remain in many parking lots on the Metro system, click here for the full list.
