“Pay by Plate” System to Replace “Pay and Display” in Fishing Club, Howard Park and Post Park Lots.
WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (February 6, 2019) –
Motorists parking vehicles in the City of West Palm Beach Fishing Club lot, Howard Park lot, and the Post Park lot will soon experience parking improvements. City of West Palm Beach Parking Administration is in the process of converting ‘pay and display’ meters in those lots to MS1 Multi-Space Pay Stations, allowing motorists to pay by plate and eliminating the need for them to return to their vehicles after making payment. The new pay stations will replace the aging ‘pay and display’ meters. Methods of payment accepted at the new stations will include cash, credit card or payments via the ParkMobile app.
Among the many benefits of the MS1 Multi-Space Pay Stations are:
- Convenience for parkers;
- Improved visibility thanks to blue LED lighting above the display;
- Power efficiency resulting from environmentally-friendly solar panels and combination battery power;
- Durability from high security stainless steel housing with weather and graffiti-resistant powder coating.
“We are committed to providing superior customer service to our valued parkers,” said Parking Administrator Ed Davis. “Our customers will find these new pay stations easier to use. By entering your plate number and paying, there is no need to return to your car to place a ticket on the dash. Using the new pay stations is as simple as entering your plate number, selecting your length of stay, and confirming your order.”
The multi-space pay stations have been installed at these public lot locations:
- Fishing Club lot; 203 5th St.
- Howard Park lot; 1302 Parker Ave.
- Post Park lot; 300 S. Narcissus, between Evernia & Fern Sts.
The new meters are expected to be operational within the next two weeks.
These are the latest of many enhancements and improvements that have been made to our City’s parking system which aims to provide more convenience, reliability and safety for all parkers. For more information, please visit: http://wpb.org/parking
