City to Use More Electronic Parking Meters

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – There’s no time line for additional electronic parking meters in the City of St. Louis, but an official says you’ll be seeing more of them in the future.

Tom Stoff with the St. Louis Treasurer’s Office says the city prefers a system known as “pay per space.”

“What happens with those is all the meters in the lots is usually marked with a number.  When you go to the multi space machine, you swipe your credit cards you punch in the number of your parking space , purchase the amount of time you want and that’s the end of it” said Stoff.

You will find them in-use already at the Amtrak lot downtown,  in a Soulard parking lot and a lot on South Grand.

Soon to come will be one in the 3100 block of Olive and, down the line, Washington Avenue and the Central West End.  Eventually , Stoff says, the city will have single parking space credit card friendly meters.
