Available to Businesses in the Central Area General Improvement District

These validations allow businesses to provide free or reduced cost parking for their customers.

Starting October 1, 2023, all validations will be transitioned to the new gateless platform

How will validations work with the new gateless garages?

When our garages transition to the Metropolis platform on October 1, validations will be transitioned over as well!

Payment for validations will be collected at the end of each month. This post-payment invoicing ensures that you are only charged for what is utilized each month. Payment for validations can be made via portal.metropolis.io. This is also where you can view your monthly invoices. Both credit card and ACH are accepted forms of payment.

Under the new gateless system, if your guest’s stay was longer than the allotted validation period, they will be charged for any time over the validation period. If they have signed up for Metropolis, they can just drive out and will receive a text with a link to view their receipt. Those who have not signed up for Metropolis and go over the allotted validation period may be subject to fines.
