Credit Card Data Security Assured with New Parking Meters Coming to Riverside

Digital Payment Technologies (DPT), a leading supplier of electronic parking meters and Internet-based management solutions for the global parking industry, is pleased to announce its recent order from the City of Riverside, CA, to supply 32 LUKE parking pay stations to the citys downtown Justice Center.
The LUKE parking pay stations will accept credit cards, bills, coins, and Pay-by-Cell phone transactions. Using the citys Wi-Fi network, the pay stations will be networked together to provide capabilities to parkers such as the ability to add time at any pay station. City officials will also have online access to real-time revenue reports and the ability to remotely change screen messages and rates. Integrated solar panel technology will be used to keep each pay station charged. The move to the LUKE pay stations was primarily initiated because the existing 12-year-old multi-space meters can no longer accept credit cards as these meters fail to meet the Payment Card Industrys (PCI) data security standards. LUKE has been validated by qualified security assessors to ensure the product meets the latest standards outlined by credit card companies such as Visa and MasterCard.

These meters offer visitors more options and convenience than ever before, comments City Councilman Mike Gardner. The LUKE system even has the capability of sending the user a text message warning that time is about to expire and the ability to add time remotely by cell phone. The LUKE pay stations targeted for the Justice Center are expected to be installed and operational by May. In the meantime, citizens and government officials from Riverside are also evaluating LUKE for downtown streets and surface parking lots outside of the Justice Center neighborhood.
