Coming Soon: new parking meters and pay-by-phone technology!

In 2017, the Albany Parking Authority will bring new technology to the area that will change the way people pay for parking to make the process easier, faster and more convenient.

Brand new meters will ask drivers for their license plate number, eliminating the need to return to the car and leave the receipt in the dashboard. For the first time, meters will have the ability to provide coupons to nearby businesses and streamline parking validation.

Additionally, mobile payment will be unveiled through a smart phone app. Drivers will be able to pay for parking while walking to their meeting, a show or dinner. If plans change and they need more time in their parking spot, they can simply add time through the app!

Stay tuned for more information in the coming months.
