On May 4, Mount Prospect will go live with a new parking payment system at the Village commuter parking lots. Commuters now have 3 options to pay for their parking in the Village commuter parking lots:
- NEW! Parking Payment Kiosks
- NEW! Whoosh Mobile payment app
- Monthly Parking permit program
NEW! Parking Payment Kiosks
The parking payment kiosks accept coins, bills and credit cards. The Village debit card will no longer be accepted at the new machines, so users are encouraged to use up their card balances by the May 4 go live date.
Parking Kiosk Installation
The new parking kiosks will be installed Monday, May 2 and Tuesday, May 3. During the two day installation period there will be no charge for daily fee parking. Daily fee commuters can park free of charge with no threat of receiving a ticket.
Village Debit Card No Longer Accepted
The new parking kiosks will not accept the current Village debit card. We encourage you to use up the balance on the your card prior to May 4. However, if you have money left on your card as of May 4 the Village will refund you the balance on the card.
To receive a refund for unused monies please come in person or mail the card to the Finance department (be sure to include your name, mailing address, and phone number or email address). The Finance department will have a card reader to determine the value left on the card. All refunds will be issued in the form of a check and can take up to three weeks to process. This includes refunds for cards delivered in person. Refunds requested before May 4 will not be processed until after May 4.
