Pennsylvania city to replace parking meters with kiosks
Allentown, Pennsylvania, will replace 350 parking meters with 63 strategically located payment kiosks by April, according to The Morning Call. The kiosks will accept payments via credit card, coin, bank note and cell phone app. The kiosks eventually will be programmed to allow customers to link payment accounts to their vehicle's license plate.
The $623,000 budget for the project was approved by the Allentown Neighborhood Improvement Zone Development Authority.
Twenty-two of the kiosks will be installed along and near Hamilton Street. These kiosks will be equipped with screens running public service announcements, advertising and emergency notifications, according to John Morgan, executive director of the parking authority.
