Smart Parking Meters Now City-Wide

The City of Madison Parking Division this week completed installation of approximately 650 additional single-space "smart meters". This project was proceeded by a one year trial featuring 46 "smart meters" throughout the City. Replacing the remaining on-street coin-only meters, these smart meters are able to accept payment by coin and credit/debit card (Visa and MasterCard), providing a greater convenience to the public.

The completion of this installation marks the elimination of all on-street "coin-only" meters, with every on-street meter now able to accept payment by both coin and credit card. Although a payby-cell option will not be immediately available for the single space smart meters, the Parking Division hopes to expand pay-by-cell, which is currently available at multi-space meters, to include the single space smart meters, later this year.

The multi-space meters, which comprise over half of the City's more than 1400 on-street metered parking spaces, will not be replaced at this time. A replacement project for the multi-space meters is anticipated to begin within the next one to two years, as the multi-space machines near the end of their useful life. The City will explore replacement options, which could include replacement with all smart meters, or a combination of smart meters and new multi-space machines.

Receipts will also now be available at these meters when using a credit or debit card to pay. Receipts can be looked up at any time by visiting . Additional information about on-street meters and parking is available on the City of Madison Parking Division's website at:

As always, if there is anything I can do to help, feel free to reach out:
