What is "Drive In, Drive Out"?
Our "Drive In, Drive Out" facilities are camera enabled lots or garages, so your entry and exit are captured when you drive in or out. When Metropolis members enter in a registered vehicle, a welcome text is sent with a link to view the current rates. When exiting the facility in a registered vehicle, your license plate will be captured, and you will be charged automatically for your parking.
Returning Metropolis members will simply drive in and drive out, and you will be charged automatically upon exit.
New Metropolis members will scan the QR codes posted on site to create an account, register their vehicle, and add a payment method on file. Upon exiting, you will be charged automatically for your parking.
Once you have completed the sign up process once, you will not be required to register again. Payment will be automatic for each visit thereafter.
Please note, to prevent any failed payments or potential enforcement measures, vehicle and billing information must be kept up-to-date on the account at all times.
What is STP?
Our "STP" or "Scan to Park" facilities are not camera enabled, so members will pre-select the amount of time they would like to park, similar to a traditional parking meter.
Metropolis members will scan the QR codes posted on site to initiate their parking visit. After confirming your time and vehicle information, you're all set!
15 minutes before your time is set to expire, a reminder text is sent prompting you to extend your time if necessary. If you do not require additional time, you can simply ignore the text. You can also add more time directly from your "Active Visit" screen as well.
Please note, just like a traditional meter, Metropolis is not responsible for any unused time.
