Will I still get the first 15 minutes free? Yes! To activate the 15 free minutes, press the green OK button on the meter.
Coin Payment: If you are paying with coins, insert them into the coin slot. The meters accept nickels, dimes, and quarters.
The cash rates for the smart meters are:
- $0.05/4 minutes
- $.10/8 minutes
- $.15/12 minutes
- $.35/28 minutes
Passport Parking: Using the Passport Parking app remains the same on the new smart meters. You can log in, enter the zone and space number, and pay. If you have existing funds in your "wallet," they can still be used with the new smart meters. The app rates are the same as credit card rates-$1.15/hour with a one-hour minimum transaction required. As with the old meters, the time will not update on the actual meter when using the app. Enforcement officers have a handheld device that can determine if parking was paid for.
