City of St. Marys, PA Partners with MeterFeeder for a New Way to Pay for Parking.
St. Marys (PA) - The City of St. Marys, Pennsylvania has partnered with Meter Feeder, Inc to provide a new method of parking payment for its citizens. The MeterFeeder digital parking and enforcement system is already live in over 25 locations across Pittsburgh and Ohio, and will be going live in January 2019 in the City of St. Marys.
MeterFeeder will provide many new benefits to the citizens of St. Marys. People who download the app will be able to pay for parking from their phone, extend their parking reservation from their phone, pay tickets online or in the app, and get digital receipts of their parking transactions. MeterFeeder will operate on top of the existing parking infrastructure in the city, which includes over 300 traditional coin-operated meters. If a citizen forgets quarters, they now have the option to pay digitally!
The city will benefit from an organized administrative interface, new LTE tablets for the enforcement officers, and increased revenue thanks to how easy it will be to pay for parking.
“Our goal is to make paying for parking so easy, no one ever gets a parking ticket again,” quipped Dan Lopretto, MeterFeeder’s Chief Technology Officer. “The city will see increased compliance, while we simultaneously make the lives of everyday folks easier”.
Users can opt in to GPS services to be automatically placed in the correct parking zone, or they can search the app for “St. Marys” and pick their parking location manually. The app has been praised for its simplicity, with no need for searching kiosks for unique zone codes to put in. Simply search for the name of your city, and choose your specific lot.
MeterFeeder will go live in downtown St. Marys in January 2019.
