The Missoula Parking Commission of Western Montana, USA is finalising a software contract with T2 Systems, an industry leader in providing specialised software systems for parking management services, to provide the motorists of Missoula modern payment options – no more need for pockets full of change.
Over the next few months the old system of mechanised coin operated parking meters will be phased out and replaced with a new cloud-based system for parking payments. Using a credit card or mobile phone the parking can be paid for, extended or indeed unused parking time can be saved for later date.
You can read more about the installation here – however this comment is definitely worth highlighting – Anne Guest, director of the Missoula Parking Commission showing us how we can make the sustainable out of the obsolete…
“We’ll take the mechanisms off and consider leaving the posts… With the addition of a loop, they become really good bicycle parking. Rather than removing the post, it becomes a useful street amenity.”
