By Credit Card (All Surface Lots):

Machines at the entrance gates will instruct the driver to insert a credit card (American Express, VISA, MasterCard or Discover). When the gate opens and the vehicle enters, the computer's "parking meter" begins. Upon leaving, the visitor drives to the exit gate and inserts the same credit card. It is very important to use the same credit card used at entry while exiting, otherwise the computer will not recognize the card. The gate will open within a few seconds, at which time the meter stops. The computer calculates the time, checks for fee approval and automatically bills the credit card. IMPORTANT - if you are issued a validation, please insert it FIRST into the machine, it will keep the validation. Then, insert the credit card used at the entry and the gate will open.


There is a METRORail stop across the street from the main entrance of the Rice campus. The rail line travels up and down Main Street, serving downtown, the Texas Medical Center and Reliant Park.
