New Parking Meters Accept Credit Cards
The new parking meters installed in downtown Billings last month have been glitchey, but officials say they’re working now. The 120 smart parking meters can now read your credit card, along with accepting coins. Officials also promise that sometime in the new year, you will be able to use a smartphone app to tell you where parking is available downtown, including inside the city’s parking garages. You’ll also be able to add time to your meter on your smartphone, to keep yourself from getting a ticket, without having to run back to the actual meter and make a deposit.
