Hoboken Rolls Out Pay-By-Plate Parking Meter System For Improved ConvenienceTweet
Hoboken, NJ - Thursday, March 17th, 2016
The City of Hoboken is beginning to transition existing on-street parking meters from a “pay-and-display” to “pay-by-plate” system. Under the new system, customers will be able to pay at any pay station in the city without needing to return to their vehicle to display the receipt.
In the months ahead, the new payment system will also allow customers the ability to “pay-by-phone” using a mobile application. Through “pay-by-phone,” customers will be able to pay for parking without going to a meter and add time to the meter directly from a mobile phone application or by calling without returning to the meter.
To purchase parking with the pay-by-plate system, customers will 1) Enter the vehicle license plate number and 2) Make payment via credit/debit card, smart card, coins, or bills (where available). There is no need to return to the vehicle to leave the receipt. The real-time paid/unpaid status will be visible to enforcement officers via tablet computers.
The transition to “pay-by-plate” will begin on Monday, March 21st with the meters located on Hudson Place. Parking Enforcement Officers will be stationed at the meters to educate drivers on the use of the meters. Additional blocks will transition to the new system in the following days and weeks.
