The E1 parking lot has changed and will now be split between E1 (pay per use) and E18 (discount permit) parking.

Paying by Credit Card in E1

E1 parkers will be charged $6 upon exit for each day parked. One day constitutes 24 hours from the time of entry. Cash & Husky Card Account will no longer be accepted. Commuter Services hopes to make Husky Card Account payment available at a future date. Credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover), UW pre-issued access cards (UW department and Seattle Children’s users), Pay per use (pre-arranged parking plan) will be accepted. You will be required to swipe your card upon both entrance and exit. This is a change from current procedure, where payment or access cards are required only to enter the lot. Please note that the same card must be used for entry and exit, or the gate arm will not lift to allow exit. Carpool parking will cost $6 per day per vehicle. The new infrastructure does not allow the splitting of the parking fee at the time of purchase at the gate, but your carpool membership can decide how to continue to split the cost. Carpooling continues to save you money by sharing the cost of parking, gas and vehicle maintenance.
