Pay-By-Phone Parking Being Tested In The Bronx

Tuesday, April 09, 2013 - 04:57 PM

An 18-block stretch in the Bronx will be the first in New York City to test pay-by-phone parking.

The pilot program will allow people to use phone, internet or smartphone app to pay for 264 metered parking spaces along or adjacent to Arthur Avenue  — as well as spots in the city’s Belmont Municipal Parking Field. To participate, motorists must sign up in advance on the Pay-By-Phone website. Each Muni-Meter in the pilot program has a QR code and a seven-digit number; the motorist must use either to confirm payment.

With all the jobs that these machines are taking away will the economy be able to create a new entire sector like it traditionally has or will the machines just repair and build other machines?

Should the new pay by phone parking meters become a success won't that necessarily mean that less people will be required in the future to collect meter fee's? and doesn't that translate into less overall jobs?
