Pre-Paid SmartChips

Purchase Pre-paid SmartChips and Save on Parking Fees

Pre-paid SmartChips offer discounted rates and unlimited in-and-out privileges.  If you plan to park for several days or make repeated trips to Texas Medical Center, consider one of the Pre-paid SmartChip options below. Please note that when you purchase a Pre-paid SmartChip for the first time you will still need to pay separately for that visit using the yellow SmartChip you received at entry. The Pre-paid SmartChip can then be used upon your next visit.

$52 Pre-paid SmartChip: Loaded with $60 in parking value

  • Unlimited in and out privileges
