For decades state agencies could fill and use CashKeys to pay at state-owned parking meters (these meters have a purple sticker that surrounds the keyhole). CashKey technology is now obsolete and DAS Parking Services can no longer reload the funds on existing keys nor create new ones.
Agencies have until September 1, 2018 to use the remaining balance on their CashKeys; Parking Services will not refund these balances. When you've exhausted the remaining balance, payment options are to purchase daily permits or pay with coins
Each individual or agency that paid a key deposit may receive a refund of this deposit (agencies may request a BT transfer). Individuals or agencies may opt to exchange the key deposit refund for a credit toward daily parking permits; this offer is only good through the end of June 2018. Please contact our office at 503-378-5090
, ext. 0 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you would like more information on key deposit refund options.
Projects are scheduled for the 2017-19 biennium to begin replacing state-owned parking meters with pay and park stations like those in the Yellow lot, or at some locations, with parking meters that accept credit cards.
