LUKE Pay Terminal and Ramp Console Tutorials


LUKE Pay Terminal How To


Below is a brief tutorial on how to use the newly installed solar-powered LUKE pay stations on the 200 - 300 block of North Washington Avenue in downtown Lansing. This new technology is easy to use, convenient and efficient. The LUKE pay stations will be programmed with a three-hour time limit.

How It Works


  1. Park your vehicle as usual.
  2. Make a note of your 3 digit parking space number; clearly marked on the parking space signs that have replaced the tops of old meter posts.
  3. Look for any conveniently located pay station. There are currently eight pay stations located on the 200 - 300 block of North Washington.
  4. Press any key to “wake” the unit from power save mode.
  5. Using the key pad enter your space number then select “1” to pay for parking.
  6. Use the key pad to page through the menu, then select the number that shows your length of stay (three hours maximum).
  7. Insert exact change or credit/debit card. The pay station does not provide change.
  8. Take your receipt with you. The time your parking meter expires is printed right on the receipt.

Ramp Console How To


Below is brief tutorial on how to operate the credit card and cash payment consoles located in parking ramp locations. You'll find these consoles in ramps like North Capitol Ramp, North Grand Ramp, South Capitol Ramp and the Townsend Ramp.

How it Works:
  1. 1. When you enter a parking ramp, press the button before the gate to receive a paper ticket.
  2. 2. As you leave the ramp, make sure you head towards an appropriate exit gate.
  3. 3. There will be multiple gates that take either credit or cash and credit. Make sure you know how you'd like to pay before you get into a lane.
  4. 4a. If paying by card, insert the ticket first, followed by your credit/debit card.
  5. 4b. If paying by cash, insert the ticket first, followed by your cash.
  6. 5. Take your receipt before you leave. 
Instructions on how to use these stations will be available on the consoles and will walk you through how to use the stations if you get confused.
