No Need for Change

Campus parking meters will no longer accept change as a form of payment. The new meters can be used with and Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card. The parking cost is $1 per hour or $5 per day until 10 p.m.

Parking permits are required Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Passes are not required on weekends or campus-recognized holidays.

“I think it’s more convenient to charge cards instead of using change,” said Molly Bertz, a Chico State student. “Almost everyone has one [credit card], and it might be more common to not have change than it is to not have a card.”

This new form of payment aids the university in promoting sustainability. The new parking machines are battery-operated and don’t use electricity.

Some parking meters downtown have also begun accepting credit or debit cards.
