Please review the maps (above) of the temporary metered spots the Village will be adding during the Metra Pedestrian Intersection Improvement Project. The parking meter machine, located at the west end of the train station platform, will remain accessible throughout construction. You will be responsible for paying all appropriate meter fees. Remember the number of the space you park in and enter that number into the machine.
Payment can be made by cash, credit card, with your phone via app (PassportParking), website (www.m.ppprk.com) or phone number (708-716-0716). The Zone for each of these options is 60546. Signage explaining payment options is located above the pay machine. The metered spaces cost 25 cents per hour, and can be programmed for up to 24 hours at a time. Additional time may be purchased AFTER the meter expires. These spaces are free on weekends, from midnight on Friday until midnight on Sunday, and on holidays.
