Can I still use the Passport app for payment?

The Passport app will no longer be available for payment at the Garage. If you have a pre-paid balance in Passport and would like to transfer it for usage in the new Flash system, please contact parking@drexel.edu. Passport remains a payment option in Lot C (hourly parking) and Lots S, R, A (evening and weekend parking).

What if my DragonCard or Parking Access card doesn’t work at the entrance, or I forget it one day?

We're trying to prepare for as many scenarios as possible and understand accidents may happen. In this event, simply pull a ticket (the gate will rise). Once you're parked and settled, contact Parking Services at 215.895.2813 or email parking@drexel.edu with your ticket number so we can resolve. Remember, a ticket (or DragonCard) is required to exit the Garage now, so be sure you contact us before driving out.

The new sign says "Lot Full," but I’m a permit holder or registered guest.

The Lot Full sign will illuminate when the Garage cannot accept any more additional public parking. Permit holders still have 24/7 access to the Garage.

I'm a non-University affiliated customer and often park in this Garage. Can I now buy a monthly parking permit?

A limited number of monthly parking permits are available for non-University community members. To check on availability, contact Parking Services.

As a permit holder, do I need a placard?

No; placards are no longer required for Garage and Lot F permit holders. To avoid a disruption in access or citations, always ensure your vehicle information is up to date (even with temporary vehicles) via the ParkDrexel portal. A placard is required for all other lots.
