Why does my i-Park card say “unreadable” when I try to use it?

The magnetic strip on your card is very sensitive and should be kept away from magnets or magnetic surfaces such as credit cards or cell phones. When you swipe the card and the message you get is “unreadable,” your card has been de-magnetized. Please stop by the Parking Office to replace it.

Will these cards work on Husker Football game days or special events?

Validated or discounted parking is not accepted during special event *prepays such as Arena concerts, Farmer’s Market, football games, Lied Center events, etc. *A prepay is a flat rate we collect upon entry to the parking facility. It alleviates the “run out” after an event.

If your card is lost or damaged, a new one can be issued at the City of Lincoln Parking Office. The City of Lincoln Parking is not liable for stolen value any card. The value of these cards is neither transferable nor refundable.

Note: Please keep cards away from magnets or magnetic surfaces.

Can I be refunded for parking I do not use?

No refunds will be issued for any unused value on your i-Park card.
