Do I have to register my vehicle to get a Parking PASSport?
Your Parking PASSport will work regardless of what vehicle you are in so it's not necessary to register your vehicle(s) in the program. However the Parking PASSport can only be used with one vehicle, at any one time.
What if my Parking PASSport is lost or stolen?

Report the loss immediately because transactions using your Parking PASSport are directly tied to your credit card. You will be responsible for all fees on your Parking PASSport until you have reported it lost or stolen on your personal PASSport account page. Your existing card will be blocked and a new card will be issued. Your credit card will be billed a $5 replacement card fee.

If your card is lost while traveling, use a cashiered lane and provide an alternate form of payment when exiting the garage.

Can I use my Parking PASSport in all garages and lots?
The Parking PASSport system is available in all Logan Airport garages, including long term parking and the Terminal E lots. The only parking facility where Parking PASSport is not offered is the overflow lot.
Can I pay for my Parking PASSport charges using an exit express Parking Pay Station?

The parking pay station is only for paper tickets. If you took a ticket as you entered the garage, then you must pay for parking at a Parking Pay Station before returning to your car. Then use the validated ticket to leave the garage via an exit express lane. Your PASSport will not work in the exit lane if you took a paper ticket.

If you swiped your Parking PASSport in front of the reader when you entered the garage, then you must swipe your PASSport in front of the reader at the time of exit.

Please do not take a ticket after you have swiped your Parking PASSport. You must choose one method or the other.

If I have a Parking PASSport, can I still pay cash for parking?
Yes. If you do not wish to use your Parking PASSport, you may take a parking ticket when you enter the garage instead of swiping your proximity card. Remember to keep your parking ticket with you and stop at a Parking Pay Station before returning to your car.
What credit cards are accepted for payment?
Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
