Sick of searching for quarters when you need to feed a parking meter? NYC is set to test out a new system that would allow you to pay for street parking using a smartphone app.
The city is set to equip 300 parking spots in the coming months with a new tech that allows you to pay for parking using your phone. You'll need to complete a one-time registration online, but after that you simply text the parking meter number and the amount of time you want to a special number, or use an app to do the same. Time running low? You'll be notified and given the option to feed the meter without having the trudge back to your car. Not bad!
The system is already in place in Atlanta and Washington, and if the trial program works well in New York it'll expand to the entire city.
