Pittsburgh Parking Authority expands successful program and shows continued confidence in Cale’s Pay-by-Plate solution.
In March 2013, the board of the Pittsburgh Parking Authority approved funds to buy and maintain additional Cale WebTerminal (CWT) multi-space parking terminals for the Squirrel Hill, Shadyside and Bloomfield neighbourhoods.
Dave Onorato, the authority’s Executive Director, said the terminals would be installed by the end of the summer. The city is in the process of replacing 3,000 outdated single-space terminals.
Cale America was awarded a contract last year to install terminals in the North Shore, South Side, Downtown, Oakland, Shadyside and Bloomfield areas of Pittsburgh.
Onorato said that total street-terminal revenue increased by about 30% in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. He attributed the increase to the new terminals, which accept credit/debit cards in addition to quarters.
