New e-Park Pay Stations Come to Minnesota State Capitol Complex
Visitors to State Capitol and surrounding complex buildings can now pay for parking quickly and conveniently with credit/debit cards, coins, or cash

ST. PAUL – Visitors to the Minnesota State Capitol will no longer need a handful of quarters at the ready when parking in nearby lots or ramps. With the launch today of new e-Park multi-space pay stations in many stateowned visitor parking locations on the Capitol Complex, parkers now have a number of convenient options.
When using the e-Park pay stations, payment options include $1 and $5 bills, Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards, or coins, all at a rate of $1.50 per hour or $6.00 per day. These multi- space machines, which have become increasingly common across the Twin Cities in recent years, offer easy to follow screen prompts and instructions and will print a receipt showing stall number and expiration time following each transaction. Customers can add additional time to their stall from any e-Park pay station on the Capitol Complex.
The Plant Management Division (PMD) of the Minnesota Department of Administration manages and maintains 35 state parking facilities in total, along with the nearly 20 buildings and 40 acres of grounds that make up the State Capitol Complex. The e-Park pay stations are available in nine different public parking locations, including the lot on Cedar Street and Sherburne Avenue just northeast of the Capitol, the lot on North Robert Street and 14th Street adjacent to the Department of Revenue building, and the ramp on Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Cedar Street. Three pay stations are also available on Aurora Avenue directly in front of the Capitol’s public entrance; public parking is not available on Aurora Avenue during Legislative session, but the pay stations can still be used to add time for parking in other lots and ramps.
