Winchester City to Offer Pay by Cell Feature for Parking Meters
10 July 2017 News
At the end of June, the City of Winchester Parking Authority met to talk about rental customers being able to make monthly parking garage rent payments online. That feature should be going live in the near future as it was projected for mid July. Officials have worked diligently to test features and making sure the system accepts all types of credit cards.
An exciting feature for the city also in the works is Pay by Cell. With this feature, motorists will be able to pay metered street parking through their cell phone. They will also be able to add extra time to their meters through the payment option.
According to Samantha Anderson, Winchester Parking Authority, customers would be able to start an initial session. Customers would also be notified when their meter was about to expire through an alert on their phone. They would then be given the option to continue their session through a premium rate. Winchester Parking Authority is hoping for that the new Pay by Cell will be able to go live in the Fall of this year.
