Traffic and Parking Website Is Window To Parking Future


Take a glimpse at the new Traffic and Parking website "Parking Meters" section where it talks about everything from multi-space parking meters to kiosks. Looks like the CVS parking lot in Magoun Square will feature the multi-space parking meters.

They write (about multi-space parking meters), "The new meters will make parking in Somerville more convenient. Instead of accepting only coins and Parkcards like traditional meters, the pay stations accept coins, Parkcards and credit cards. Now you don't have to worry about having enough change to park! Environmentally Friendly. The Kiosks run on a battery that is charged by solar power."

This sounds great, but makes me worry that the new technology will open the door for more parking fee increases.
