Erie parking meter app boasts over 5,000 downloads and climbing

Local News

It’s been about a month now since the app has been in operation that lets drivers feed the parking meter through a smartphone.

We’re told that about 5,000 people have signed up and the app is gaining about 100 new drivers per day.  The Parking Authority is also pleased that there are a lot of repeat customers using their phones, which means those customers like the convenience. 

The use of the kiosk on West 6th Street is about where the authority expected and the next month is key to see if the kiosk, which takes coins or credit cards, is catching on.
