City of Sacramento Installs New 'Smart' Parking Meters

  

The city says new "smart meters" have now been installed around City Hall and Cesar Chavez Plaza. They accept credit cards, quarters, dimes, nickels or combinations of cards and coins.

The city plans to install a total of 4,000 of the new machines downtown, in Midtown and in Old Sacramento in the coming months.

Installation in Old Sacramento starts Wednesday.

The city also plans to include an app in the future that will allow people to get a text when a meter is about to run out, and pay with their cell phone.

The app would also allow people to locate empty parking spots.
