Ask Pat: Parking Meters and PayByPhone.

Edjo asks—

New Area/Block Parking Meters and PayByPhone.

Is there any plan to enable to the new area/block parking meters to be work with PayByPhone as is the case in Vancouver (for years) and the River Market parking lot?


The new meters were purchased with the capability to support this. Currently the budget for the system is being allocated towards installations and getting the meters across the City changed over to the new system. There will be a cost to implementing the pay-by-phone option, which will probably have to come through Council, so I don’t have a time frame for you, but that is definitely the plan.
