MADISON (WKOW) — The city of Madison this week completed installation of approximately 650 additional single-space “smart meters.”

The completion of this installation marks the elimination of all on-street coin-only meters, with
every on-street meter now able to accept payment by both coin and credit card.

This project was proceeded by a one year trial featuring 46 “smart meters” throughout the city.

Replacing the remaining on-street coin-only meters, these smart meters are able to accept payment by coin and credit/debit card (Visa and MasterCard), providing a greater convenience to the public.

Although a payby-cell option will not be immediately available for the single space smart meters, the

Parking Division hopes to expand pay-by-cell, which is currently available at multi-space meters, to
include the single space smart meters, later this year.

The multi-space meters, which comprise over half of the city’s more than 1400 on-street metered
parking spaces, will not be replaced at this time.

A replacement project for the multi-space meters is anticipated to begin within the next one to two years, as the multi-space machines near the end of their useful life.

The city will explore replacement options, which could include replacement with all smart meters, or a combination of smart meters and new multi-space machines.

Receipts will also now be available at these meters when using a credit or debit card to pay.

Receipts can be looked up at any time by visiting https://www.myparkingreceipts.com.
