City of Reno installing high-tech parking meters

By ThisIsReno

Reno_Parking_MeterThe city of Reno has purchased 898 SmartMeters from IPS Group, Inc. and is installing them in downtown parking areas. The new high-tech solar-powered parking meters offer users additional payment options such as credit cards and coin. The meters are wirelessly networked to a web-based management system which alerts the city in the event of required maintenance.

Prior to their introduction, motorists were limited to coin-only meters to pay for their parking. In addition to coins, the SmartMeters accept Visa and MasterCard. The minimum amount of time one can purchase with a credit card is one hour. The cost per hour is $1. For more information and locations of the SmartMeters, please visit Reno.gov/Parking.
