The City of Dayton Convention Center has implemented new parking equipment that will drastically reduce the amount of time it takes to exit the parking garage after an event at the Convention Center.  Attendees will now pay at one of our convenient Pay Stations located on Level 1 of the parking garage (where the skywalk is located). Once you have paid at one of the pay stations you will receive a validated ticket for use at the exit. You will then have 20 minutes to exit the garage.  Upon arriving at the exit, simply scan the validated parking ticket and the gate will raise.  Please note: There are no cashiers stationed at the exits. Credit cards are the only form of payment that are accepted at the exits.  To use Cash, you must use a Pay Station that is located on Level 1 of the parking garage.
