Paid parking begins Monday at Hawthorne/Lennox Station; on deck are three Gold Line stations

Paid parking will be implemented at four Metro Rail stations over the next several weeks, including the Green Line’s Hawthorne/Lennox Station beginning Monday, April 15.
At the dates in the table below, paid parking will be added at three Gold Line stations: Indiana, Arcadia and Duarte.
All stations will have the automated pay systems that are in use at other Metro pay parking lots. Riders will need a valid TAP card and either cash or credit card to pay. Parking kiosk locations are different for each facility but are generally located along pedestrian walkways.
You can also pay for parking online at parkatmetro.net or use the Metro parking app. The app is available in the iTunes store and the Google Play store. Click here to purchase monthly parking — the stations will be added to that page once paid parking begins.
Under a plan approved by the Metro Board of Directors, Metro has converted some of its busiest parking lots to pay lots. The reasons are two-fold: 1) the fee helps keep some parking spaces open throughout the day for transit riders, and; 2) the fees prevent parking spaces from being taken by people not using transit.
Free spaces remain in some parking lots on the Metro system, click here for the full list of free and paid parking.
