Parking Meter and Smart Card Replacement Project (Parking system upgrades)
The following upgrades to the Princeton Parking System will be undertaken in late summer / early fall 2018:
o Short term meters will be replaced with new single space smart meters, which will accept coin, credit card, and Passport mobile app payments.
o Longer term meters will be replaced with new paystations, which will accept coin, credit card, and Passport mobile app payments.
o Smart cards will be replaced by the Passport mobile app with virtual wallet.
o Municipal code changes including (by not limited to) meter time limits, meter hours of operation, loading zone metering, and distribution of meter zones are also under discussion.
o Future phases of this upgrade project include digital online license plate-based parking permits to replace the current decal and hang tag system.
