The Philadelphia Parking Authority, now four years into using on-street electronic kiosks in Center City and University City, has no immediate plans to extend them into neighborhoods.
It’s an incentive offered by the city every year around this time to get more holiday shoppers to do their gift buying in Philadelphia rather than the malls.
Part of the school district bailout that the mayor plans is an increase in the cost of parking on the street in Center City and University City. Rates will go up by 50-cents.
It’s been nearly a year and a half now since the Philadelphia Parking Authority ripped out thousands of old parking meters in Center and University Cities, but many of the old poles which held those meters remain in place, littering city sidewalks.
New parking meters are coming to Lower Merion, Pa. and the new meters have some high-tech features that township officials believe drivers will like.
