Cash Keys

Out of quarters? Tired of digging in your purse? Try the Cash Key!

The CashKey Incremental Meter Payment System includes electronic meters designed to offer a convenient method to pay metered parking fees. The meters allow payment with coins or with a CashKey.

Purchase your CashKeys at:

Bethesda Parking Sales Store
4720 Cheltenham Drive (within Garage 42)
Bethesda, Maryland 20814
M-F 7:30am to 4:00pm, except County Holidays

How does a CashKey work?
CashKeys are programmed with whatever value the buyer desires, in $10 increments, with a $10 minimum. When you first insert the CashKey, the meter displays the value remaining, which is rounded down to the nearest whole dollar. Each time you insert the key to add time, the appropriate value is deducted from the key and the time purchased is added to the meter.

When the desired amount of time has been registered, you remove the CashKey from the meter and take it with you. If the CashKey is left inserted for more than five seconds, the meter will go into an out-of-order mode until the CashKey is removed. A CashKey does not guarantee a space, and metered parking spaces are on a first come, first served, basis.
