When making meter payments using Passport, parkers have the option to make a one-time payment using a credit card, which will require an additional transaction fee of 15¢, or pay using Passport’s prepaid wallet without an additional fee. Adding a prepaid Wallet to your account requires a minimum deposit of $10, which can be used to pay for parking.
