PARKING IMPLEMENTATION UPDATE (SEPTEMBER 3):
The parking meter install in the downtown core is complete. The meters take credit cards, coins, tokens, Google/Apple Pay and you may pay by the ‘Park Smarter’ application. Activate the Google/Apple Pay by pressing the 'ok'. Activate the courtesy 15-minute ‘quick trip’ option by pressing the ‘+ time'. If using the “Park Smarter” application, scan the QR code on the meter which will take you directly to the meter. You can also identify your meter number by looking at the bottom of the screen and you can manually enter your meter number into the location area.
Three pay stations are installed on south exit from the 1st Floor of the Parking Ramp and take the same payment options. The Park Smarter information is displayed throughout the first floor of the parking ramp and on the paystations. The location to be used for payment is 'Main Floor Parking Ramp'.
Dollar tokens are available for purchase by businesses through the City Finance Office.
The online citation payment portal is activated for payment of current and past citations. New ordinance allows for a vehicle to be immobilized with three parking tickets with an outstanding balance or $125 in fines. Go to rapidcity.citationportal.com and you can look up your tickets by your license plate, tickets go back to 2016.
