Winchester City Council Approves Pay by Cell for City Parking
27 July 2017 News
On July 26, 2017, Winchester City Council approved a Pay by Cell option payment for city parking. The city hopes to have the payment option as a working function in about a month. At that time, motorists will be able to pay for their metered street parking from an app on their cell phone as well as add extra time to their meters.
This will add an extra convenience for motorists as the option allows them to pay without having to physically be at the meter. The downtown parking meters currently operate off of coin payments.
The Pay by Cell option is another upgrade the Winchester Parking Authority has worked to approve recently. Last month, the authority made it possible for rental customers to pay their monthly fees online.
