Drivers can buy additional time into the next day the night before by pressing the yellow "next day purchase" button on paystations. Place the pay station receipt on your windshield showing pre-payment.
If you parked at a City of Austin parking meter and left your vehicle overnight to seek a responsible ride home, subsequently receiving a parking ticket for an expired meter, the Austin Transportation Department will waive the ticket. To participate in this program, please read the instructions found on the Ticket Waiver Form, complete the form and bring or send it to the Parking Enterprise Division. Please keep a copy of your Proof of Responsible Ride (ex: time and datestamped taxi or bus receipt) for your records.
