#3 is too complicating! #1 is more straight forward and would better suit as an instruction. Or you can say "Day passes are sold only at the last vending machine to the right." For instructions it is good to keep sentences as concise as possible, especially in high traffic areas like a bus or train station. Hope this helps.
