​​​​​Charlotte Coins

Park It! introduced the first Charlotte Coin in January 1999 as the validation tool for the Park! Center City program. The Charlotte Coin makes it more convenient and less expensive to visit Charlotte's Center City. When patrons visit Center City businesses participating in the Park! Center City program, they receive a $1 Charlotte Coin that is accepted in parking meters and at participating parking lots and garages.

Citizens can use Park It! tokens on CATS buses and the LYNX Blue Line. Riders will be credited $1.00 after inserting the token into a bus fare box or train station ticket vending machine. Citizens will then be required to pay the difference to complete the fare and gain access to the service. For a list of CATS and LYNX fares, please visit
