ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Over the past few months, St. Louis City has tried out several new parking meter systems on various blocks in the city and in the Central West End.

But on Tuesday night, residents had a chance to give feedback on the different systems and speak with representatives from those companies.

The feedback was mostly positive, with most residents saying they just wanted a system that gave them options.

One popular choice was the phone app “Park Mobile.”

“I like the variety, so if you don’t have change, you can use cash, and if you don’t have dollar bills or change, you can use your credit card,” one resident said.

The city will keep the test systems in place until the end of July, and then make a decision on which to use city-wide.
