Pay by Space


ECU Parking & Transportation is proud to bring "Pay by Space" to ECU. In an effort to improve on the metered system, we rolled out our first "Pay by Space" station at the 5th and Harding Street Parking Lot. Instead of the older, separate meters, there is now only one innovative station for the entire lot. Aside from the mechanical and technological improvements, the single unit station accepts dollar bills as well quarters and is very easy to utilize!

The Pay by Space stations were such a success that we now have 3 more locations in addition to the 5th Street location to better serve the campus community: the Umstead parking lot, behind the Rivers building, and on College Hill!

Each space within the lot is numbered, and each number is referred to as the space's "stall". Once parked in a space, the user will simply go to the pay station and follow the directions posted on the signs conveniently placed on and alongside the station.
