Assembly wants to continue providing a valuable service to retail and restaurant visitors.  Payment for parking is not needed for regular short-term visitors.
The parking equipment accepts Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards.
Unfortunately, cash is not accepted as a payment method for  Assembly Row parking.  We utilize a credit and debit card only system to help expedite the parking process for visitors. Credit cards are a faster form of payment, and help reduce the amount of time spent at the entrance and exit gates.
The new ticketless system was designed to prevent paper ticket loss and to speed up the parking process.
Any bank issued Visa or MasterCard debit card will work with the parking system.
Assembly implemented a ticketless parking system to reduce paper consumption.  By eliminating tickets, we’re trying to make a positive impact on our carbon footprint.
When you insert your credit or debit card into the entrance machine, a time clock is stamped and the parking equipment automatically begins calculating the length of your parking stay.
Each new business day begins at 5:00 a.m. Parkers who stay beyond 5:00 a.m. will be charged additional fees for another day. The free 3-hours of parking does not apply to parkers who stay past 5:00 a.m.
At the exit gate, press the ‘Receipt’ button on the machine after you’ve inserted your credit card for payment.
Your credit card information is automatically erased as soon as you exit the garage.
Vehicles will only be towed if the customer has parked for over 3-hours at the Marketplace surface lot.  The towing company who services the lot is Stephen’s Automotive.  Click Here for contact information.

We have implemented a ticketless system to expedite the parking process. Insert your credit card at the entrance gate, and it will trigger your start time. Re-insert that same credit card at exit, and the machine will automatically calculate the amount owed. Keep in mind first 3-hours are free
Customer pay at the exit gates where they’ll insert the same credit card that was used at the entrance gate.
Your credit card information will be erased as soon as you exit the garage. Credit card information is also erased for customers who’ve paid for parking after exiting the garage.
Our neighborhood is growing, and we want to ensure that parking is available for our customers. Our controlled parking system will help us provide the best experience possible while still offering 3-hours of free parking.
