Using A Coin Slotbox
If you are parking in a lot with a coin slotbox, payment must be made by check and placed in an envelope provided by the customer. All checks must be made payable to SEPTA. The amount should equal the number of week days to be parked times the chargeable rate ($1 per day). The envelope should contain the following information:
Parking space number
Car description: make and license plate number
The date you parked the vehicle and the date you will retrieve your vehicle (total number of days of your stay)
Place the envelope with your payment in the envelope slot located on the back of the coin slotbox.
Remember, parking on Saturday, Sunday and major holidays is free.

Elwyn & Exton Stations
All electronic meters at these two stations will credit one day parking for each dollar in coins inserted. If you require four days of parking, first enter your space number, then deposit $4 in coins. (Bills and credit cards are not accepted.) The meter will display 24 hours for each dollar (coins only) inserted. These meters do not provide receipts, so please confirm the correct space number before depositing any coins.
