City Manager John Shirey caught up with the installers of new smart meters at the county courthouse

The parking revolution continues as smart meters make their way across Sacramento. Smart meters have already been installed around City Hall and Old Sacramento, and even more are to come! This week installations begin around the county buildings, near East Sacramento, and in the Handle District downtown. Installments will continue through Midtown in the near future. Check it out!

This technology makes it easier for customers to pay for parking. Smart meters accept credit cards, dimes, quarters, nickels, dollar coins and even a combination of both. A future phase of these machines will even include an app that alerts customers when their meter is about to expire and allows payment by phone. Parking, however, is not transferable so once a payment is made at one meter, the time cannot be transferred to another.
